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.
