Barry Watson joined The Martin Worley Group in January 2017. Prior to joining our firm, he developed an extensive skill set by working with financial firms in various locations. He started his career as an auditor with Ernst & Young, LLP in Kansas City, MO. After that, he spent four years working for a large Registered Investment Advisory firm in Lincoln, Nebraska. Most recently, Barry spent five years working at an ultra-high-net-worth single family office in Salt Lake City. He has significant experience with portfolio management, investment analysis, tax, estate, and financial planning.
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 boy to their family and their golden-doodle reluctantly relinquished her crown.
