With 40 years in the financial industry, Bill Harnden has perfected the ability to work with many types of advisors. “I get the biggest enjoyment when a complicated case has been presented to me and with research, contact support, and my product knowledge, I’m able to determine a viable product strategy for the client and see it through to placement.”
Born in Michigan and raised in South Florida, Bill attended Florida State University and focused on marketing before entering financial services, where he’s earned his Life, Health, Annuities and series 6, 7, and 63 licenses. Bill brings with him a depth of Life and Annuity knowledge along with the ability to create a network of industry-wide contacts. This allows him to determine the best answers to underwriting and complex scenarios.
A resident of Stuart, Florida, Bill spends his free time with his wife of 40 years, Cindy, and their three sons and their families, including five grandchildren. They love camping, boating, fishing, golfing, and playing basketball. Bill is also a strong advocate of the YMCA and is a current board member.
As for where he sees Pilot Financial in the future? “I see our company as the ‘go-to’ place for advisors where things are accomplished that other agencies cannot or won’t even attempt. I love being a part of that vision. I’ve always enjoyed helping people in all realms of my life and contributing to a broker’s success brings me great satisfaction.”
