Keith Lightfoot

Wealth Manager & LPL Registered Principal

Keith has provided 30+ years of service to a number of families, individuals and corporations providing financial planning, personal counsel and investment advice. He meets with clients and prospective clients to determine personal and family financial goals and needs and then, with other team members, crafts specific financial plans to ensure they will succeed in providing an education for their children, a comfortable lifestyle in retirement or that vacation retreat they have dreamed about. Keith is at his best when doing the in-depth research required to create specific portfolios for each client. He has also provided guidance to local companies in managing their retirement plans since the early 1990’s.

Keith has been invited to attend professional development conferences across the country to gain deeper knowledge of financial planning and specific investment issues that affect the team’s clients. He has been asked to serve on finance related committees of various nonprofit boards over the years because of his knowledge and trustworthiness.

Keith attempts to live his life by listening to others, gaining their insights and having empathy for them. This often leads to being aware of their needs and forming partnerships for serving others. He has served on the board of directors of more than ten nonprofit organizations in North Texas including board chair of several.  He and his wife Judy have been married for over 50 years and have two sons and three grandchildren.  They are active in their church and enjoy attending community events and social gatherings.
