Orange County Business Journal Awards Beacon Pointe Advisors

With immense pride, Beacon Pointe Advisors (“Beacon Pointe”) is thrilled to share our accolades from The Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ). These accolades underscore our firm’s excellence in assisting remarkable clients and our entrepreneurial growth story. Gratitude abounds as we extend our thanks to OCBJ for spotlighting Beacon Pointe in the local Orange County community and acknowledging the exceptional leaders who embody the essence of our firm.

Below are Beacon Pointe’s various year-over-year OCBJ recognitions and noteworthy news:

2023 – Beacon Pointe CEO Shannon Eusey was honored by the OCBJ at the annual Entrepreneurship Awards during Women’s History Month and Beacon Pointe’s 21st birthday.

This award is presented to individuals in the Orange County business community who have distinguished themselves through their successful business ventures, and who have clearly shown determination, creativity, and foresight through that process.

Entrepreneurship has always been very important to Shannon and her father Garth Flint, who together co-founded Beacon Pointe in 2002. It is a value that they have instilled in the very roots of the firm and something that still carries on through the Beacon Pointe company culture today. From receiving a “B” on her graduate school business plan for what was the genesis of Beacon Pointe, to founding what is now one of the largest Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) in the country. For that, Shannon was one of the five honored by the OCBJ with an ‘Excellence in Entrepreneurship’ Award.
