Kimberly Foss CFP®, CPWA®, the founder and president of Empyrion Wealth Management Inc., has spent three decades helping others make wise investment choices. Through her guidance, her clients have grown their wealth with significant above-the-market returns. The accomplished wealth manager is also a popular speaker and the author of a new book, Wealthy by Design: A 5-Step Plan for Financial Security.
She began her career as the youngest female account executive (at that time) at Merrill Lynch. Despite her success, the commission-driven environment of a stock brokerage firm whose focus was selling proprietary investment products soon convinced Kimberly to establish her own firm in 1989, E&A Investment Advisory (renamed Empyrion Wealth Management Inc. in 2004).
Bloomberg Wealth Manager named Empyrion Wealth Management Inc. as one of the nation’s top wealth managers. She is frequently interviewed by top media outlets and has appeared on Today, Good Morning America, CNBC, and Fox News, and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, MSN Money, Forbes, Investor’s Business Daily, and US News & World Report. She is a trusted source for financial industry publications that include Financial Advisor and is a regular contributing columnist to Financial Planning Magazine.
Kimberly grew up as the youngest of six in a low-income household. Further, being a single mother for over a decade, she fully understands the importance of seizing control of one’s own financial fate. Today, Kimberly brings special expertise and real passion to her work with women in transition, including: widows and divorcées; small business owners interested in developing or selling their company; pre-retirees and retirees; “Encore” (45 – 60 year olds; boomers too young to retire, too old to begin a new career); and Generation X and Y who have wealth but are in search of solid financial wisdom and guidance.
In 1999, she was the only woman – and the youngest person ever – to be recognized by California State University, Chico College of Business, as one of its most outstanding and distinguished alumni.
Kimberly has also commented on dozens of news-of-the-day stories for Forbes.com, SmartMoney.com, US News & World Report, TheStreet.com, Bankrate.com, MSN Money, Kiplinger.com, Barron’s, Dow Jones News, and Associated Press.
She was chosen to be a key contributor to Secrets of the Wealth Makers: Top Money Managers Reveal their Investing Wisdom written by Michael Lane and published by McGraw-Hill. She has also offered her commentary to Dirty Little Secrets: What the Credit Reporting Agencies Won’t Tell You by Jason Rich; Mastering the Mommy Track: Juggling Career and Kids In Uncertain Times by Erin Flynn Jay; and Stuff About Money: No BS Financial Advice for Regular People by Craig Guillot.
