Director of Training
In addition to servicing his personal financial clients, Kris Schwartz also serves as Director of Training for Darington LLP. Prior to joining the firm, Kris left a highly successful career in technology to pursue the ultimate challenge of becoming a successful financial professional, bringing uncommon knowledge and wisdom to those closest to him. Kris saw the impact of clear financial strategies in his own life as his mother was a K-12 teacher, and Kris had a calling to assist teachers with retirement education, pension maximization, and insurance planning. Kris’s passion grew, and after being promoted into management, Kris built a successful team of financial professionals that provides retirement education to hundreds of teachers throughout Texas.
Kris believes the only thing more satisfying than teaching a client how to best prepare for their future is to train new advisors to do the same for clients of their own. Kris has earned numerous recognition awards for advisor recruitment, and has since become an instrumental member of the firm in developing new advisors as they enter the industry. Kris has earned the prestigious Leader’s Club award, which recognizes financial professionals for their exceptional dedication to the financial services industry. Kris also received two Presidential Citation Awards, and held national Manager of the Year awards in both 2014 and 2015.
Kris graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing, and remains committed to continuing education and industry certifications that expand the value he provides to his clients. Kris resides in Round Rock, TX, is a devoted husband to his wife Danielle, and believes his greatest success is found in raising his children, Kole and Kendall. Kris enjoys playing golf, spending time with his family, and volunteering in his community.
