President and CEO
For more than forty years, the Wickham Financial & Insurance Services companies have been a part of the Marietta Business Community serving the financial needs of thousands of individuals, families and business owners in the Cobb County and greater Atlanta area.
Forged by his parents before him, President and CEO, Graham S. Wickham,
continues the proud tradition of serving others through the use of affordable
insurance products and has expanded the family of companies to include financial planning products and strategies to address broader financial needs.
The Wickham Family’s abiding approach to business and life is demonstrated in the following business philosophy: Seek to understand, then to be understood.
As an investment advisor representative and insurance agent, Graham is dedicated to helping his clients achieve their personal goals and objectives. Graham says, “My team and I listen to our clients. We first have to truly understand what matters to them so we can work towards creating comprehensive plans that focus on their financial goals. We take a total approach to our
services and focus on helping our clients solve financial challenges, not on pushing products.”
Graham and his skilled team of insurance and financial professionals work hard to develop trust and focus on helping clients understand that their goals are obtainable. “Many clients feel that in order to achieve goals, there is this complicated web of strategies. We help break things down into their simplest form, explaining complex financial matters in an easy-to-understand way.”
Graham earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Western Carolina University. An accomplished speaker, Graham regularly presents public literacy workshops on retirement planning, investment planning and risk management strategies. Notably, Atlanta Magazine has recognized Graham as a “Top Five Star Wealth Manager” every year since 2009. Graham is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Marietta and the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce where he participates in the CEO Round Table and is a Partner in Education.
Graham and his wife live with their son in Smyrna where he spends as much of his free time as possible outdoors. He enjoys kayaking, biking, paddle boarding, running, hiking, camping and adventure racing.
