Tucker Payne grew up in Columbus. He received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, working at an outlet mall at an Adidas store during college. He attributes this job as where he first developed his love for talking with people from all walks of life.
After graduation, Tucker was chosen for an internship at Northwestern Mutual in Greenwood, Indiana. He obtained his life and health license and spent the entire summer of 2020—during the height of the pandemic—at his home office building up his own practice, calling clients, holding Zoom meetings and putting plans together.
Since joining Giesting in June of 2021, Tucker has been sitting in on meetings with clients, shadowing the firm’s wealth advisors in order to learn best practices. He studied for–and recently passed–his Series 65 exam which qualifies him as a fee-based financial fiduciary. “I really enjoy helping people, and working with them to help them get what they most want in life,” Tucker says.
In his free time, Tucker enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching sports, working out and playing golf and basketball.
