Tell us about your career journey and what led you to choose DVI:

What led me to choose DVI was my desire to truly affect clients’ lives in a meaningful way. Large corporations, tend to view clients as just a number and with a firm like DVI, I believe I can use my expertise and experience to help our clients achieve their financial goals and provide them peace of mind with their finances.

What are the values that drive you in your professional and personal life?

One of the main values that drives my professional and personal life is accountability. When I tell someone I will do something, I want them to be able to count on me to get it done. I believe my career has been successful because I have been able to instill trust in my relationships with clients. I believe that treating everyone with respect and always being honest are ways to build the accountability which leads to strong relationships.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my wife and our golden retriever. I also enjoy going to the beach, attending sporting events and reading.

There’s a Team Behind Every DVI Team Member

DVI is not one person. Our clients come to understand that although they may interact with particular team members more than others, there is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals hard at work for them, collaborating each and every day on their behalf.

Fiduciary from the Start

Our founder, David Vaughan, created DVI over 45 years ago with an instinctive fiduciary mindset. He wanted to help his neighbors and community members grow and protect the financial success they had achieved in their lives. By building trust, he built a business that has grown in size and services. Today, we carry David's legacy forward with more comprehensive offerings to serve the ever-changing needs of our clients in Central IL and Central FL.
