Under the belief that “the person you become is determined by the books you read and the people you surround yourself with” Brady Murray’s passion lies in seeing entrepreneurs and aspiring financial planners reach their ultimate potential by associating themselves with inspiring people.
Brady’s start into the world of financial planning and entrepreneurism started while studying business in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Over the years he has gained perspective and experience in the financial planning industry as an insurance professional, a Certified Financial Planner® Professional, a District Manager, Vice President and most recently as President/CEO of a thriving financial services company in Salt Lake City, Utah where he leads an organization of 65 full time Financial Professionals that manage in excess of $1.3 billion in assets.
Another aspect of Brady’s life includes his love for serving others. Brady has been blessed with 2 sons who have Down syndrome, one biological and one adopted. Since welcoming his two special needs sons into his life, Brady has become very active in the Down syndrome community.
He is the Founder and President of Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome (RODS), a nonprofit dedicated to helping orphaned children who have Down syndrome find loving homes. Through his and many others efforts, dozens of orphaned children with Down syndrome have been united with loving families through the sport of triathlon and endurance racing. Brady has completed numerous Ironman triathlon’s, including the Ironman World Championship in Kona, where he and his son were featured on the 2012 NBC Ironman broadcast.
Brady has served on the National Advisory Board of the Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University since 2009. He is a 2014 Utah Business Magazine 40 Under 40 recipient. In 2015 Brady and his wife Andrea were selected as the Utah State University Young Alumni of the Year.
Believing that no amount of professional success can make up for failure in the home, Brady and Andrea Murray consider the opportunity to be parents and raise their 5 children to be their greatest opportunity to make a positive impact in the world.
