This year, we pored over nearly 150 nominations for REP.’s 35th annual Advisors with Heart Awards, which honors advisors who put sweat equity into philanthropic and charitable causes. There were so many outstanding advisors in the bunch that it was hard to narrow the list down to just 10, but by April 6, we made our final selections.

These FAs go beyond just writing a check or serving on the board of an organization. And each one brings his or her unique skill set to the table when serving others. Take Russell Redenbaugh of Kairos Capital Advisors. Blinded at the age of 16, he used his skill as a juijitsu champion to launch a self-defense program for young children, among other projects. Edward Jones advisor Ryan Harman learned to fly-fish when he was a teenager in the mountains of West Virginia, and now he teaches fly-fishing to disabled veterans as part of a rehabilitation program.

“I have a chance to share something that’s been really important in my life with some truly deserving soldiers,” Harman says.
