Nick Atwood joined PFG Advisors in 2016 to spearhead the business development efforts of our Workplace Financial Solutions unit. A seasoned financial advisor, Nick was a national retirement consultant for Lincoln Financial Group for over eight years, during which time he advised organizations on how to identify, select, and administer retirement plans, such as 401(k)s and 403(b)s. His clients ranged from large healthcare companies to local school boards.

“I spent almost a decade listening to business leaders share their hopes and aspirations for their companies, and their people,” says Nick. The relationships he cultivated are a great source of pride and joy for him. “The beauty of this work is witnessing its impact – whether big or small – on the people we are fortunate enough to touch,” he adds.

Born and raised in Lubbock, Nick graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Financial Planning in 2002. Prior to joining PFG Advisors, Nick served as Vice President at MassMutual Southwest, where he was charged with recruiting, managing and training financial advisors.

Nick has immersed himself in the West Texas business community. He is a graduate of the Leadership Lubbock program, where he now mentors the next generation of leadership talent. In 2013, Nick was named to the class of “20 Under 40” by the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce. Currently, he is involved with the American Diabetes Association, United Way, and the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.

Nick resides in Lubbock with his wife, Keely, and their two daughters, Swayze and Vivien. Faith and family continue to anchor Nick’s life, though his third passion is refereeing basketball games. “Refereeing has taught me so much about communication, especially when the stakes are high – whether you’re talking about college basketball or your financial future.”
