Mark Motley knows that a solid organization, and mission, is never built out of a place of scarcity. He also knows that no matter how deep your experience, or broad your connections, nothing replaces relationships and a model built upon serving people. When Mark Motley and Dave Foster founded Foster & Motley in 1996, they brought together their expertise in the areas of financial planning and investments, but mostly, they were united in the idea that clients could be served in a way that is both practical and compassionate. They haven’t looked back since. As a young man, Mark got in the trenches serving people when he spent two years on a church mission to Northeastern Brazil. After his experience there, he went on to the University of Kentucky and then to the largest bank in central Kentucky, First Security Bank, where he served as a vice president and trust investment officer for more than six years. During his time there, he obtained the CFA® designation and rose to be the number two investment person in the $1.2 billion trust department. Following that, it was on to Bartlett & Co. in Cincinnati, before the founding of Foster & Motley.
