Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES

Schenectady, NY, Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Travis Kellman joined NEXT Financial Group, Inc. (“NEXT”), a Texas-based financial services firm, last month. Kellman joins NEXT from Ameriprise Financial and has over 12 years of financial planning experience.

A life-time Schenectady resident, Kellman has joined Lynn Barnes, formerly of Wright and Barnes Investments, to form Kellman Barnes Financial Planning. With their combined 49 years of service to the Schenectady community, they have partnered to continue serving the area for years to come.

Kellman said he was attracted to NEXT because of the broker-dealer’s emphasis on keeping their advisors independent.

“The reason I’m joining NEXT is the independence they allow and the benefits of personal branding,” Kellman said. “But most importantly, because of my partnership with NEXT Representative Lynn Barnes.”

Kellman has a B.S. in Business Economics, an M.S. in Personal Financial Planning, and holds the CFP, CRPC, and EA designations. He is an adjunct professor with the College for Financial Planning and sits on the board of the Financial Planning Association of Northeastern New York.
