The criteria includes interviews, industry experience, community involvement, revenue trends and client retention.

"I congratulate Joe D. Franklin on behalf of LPL," said Andy Kalbaugh, LPL managing director and divisional president, National Sales and Consulting. "This recognition is a reflection of his commitment to providing objective financial advice that is uniquely geared toward his clients' needs. His success is a great service to the financial advice industry and the value of independent advice. LPL is proud to support Joe and we thank him for the work he does to enrich the financial lives of his clients."
