Barry Watson enjoys using his unique skill set to help clients gain financial freedom. Throughout his career he has developed significant experience with portfolio management, investment analysis, tax, estate, and financial planning by working with financial service firms. He started his career as an auditor with Ernst & Young, LLP in Kansas City, MO. and afterward working for a large Registered Investment Advisory firm in Lincoln, Nebraska. Prior to joining The Martin Worley Group, Barry spent five years working at an ultra-high-net-worth single family office in Salt Lake City.
He earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM certification in 2010 and is also a Certified Public Accountant (licensed in the State of Nebraska). He graduated with distinction from the University of Nebraska in 2005, with dual B.S. degrees in Finance and Accounting.
As an avid outdoorsman, Barry loves spending time on the water, in the field, and up in the mountains. He and his wife enjoy cooking, so you’ll find them in the kitchen together most evenings when she isn’t busy delivering babies at the University of Utah Hospital. They recently welcomed a sweet baby girl to their family, boosting their son to "big brother" status and knocking their golden-doodle down yet another rung.
