Shannon Eusey

2023 – We are excited to share that RIA Intel has named Shannon Eusey as CEO of the Year! Shannon stands as an exemplary figure, inspiring industry peers and the emerging generation while providing invaluable services to numerous foundations, private clients, and retirement plans. Founder of Beacon Pointe in 2002, Shannon is the driving force behind the transformation of the firm, which has grown into the largest female-led Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm in the nation. Alongside Beacon Pointe President, Matt Cooper, and other dedicated partners, Shannon played a pivotal role in nurturing the firm from its inception, resulting in a thriving enterprise with over 400 employees across the country and approximately $26 billion in assets under advisement (at the time of this award’s publication).

Prior to the announcement of RIA Intel’s final award winners, Beacon Pointe was also named as a finalist for RIA of the Year (More Than $1 Billion AUM) by RIA Intel, showcasing our company’s growth and increase in assets under management, we are honored to be included amongst the other finalists.

2022 – RIA Intel has named Beacon Pointe Advisors as the RIA Growth Leader of the Year for 2022!Matt Cooper

The genesis behind Beacon Pointe’s incredible growth and recent acquisition activity is due in large part to the efforts of our President, Matt Cooper, and his incredible Mergers and Acquisitions Team who was also recognized by Wealthmanagement.com as M&A Leader of the Year. In 2021 alone, Beacon Pointe’s M&A Team successfully executed 14 acquisition transactions, expanding Beacon Pointe’s presence to 37 offices in both new and existing marketplaces, and adding new locations in five states. This recognition from RIA Intel comes in addition to nods from both CityWire Magazine and Financial Advisor Magazine, who also recognized Beacon Pointe as a Top 50 Fastest Growing Firm earlier in 2022.

Prior to the announcement of RIA Intel’s final award winners, Beacon Pointe Chief Executive Officer, Shannon Eusey, was also named as a finalist and nominee for CEO of the Year. Shannon, along with Matt Cooper, are the driving forces behind the firm’s growth into new and existing marketplaces. In addition, Shannon’s leadership has been the genesis behind Beacon Pointe’s incredible culture.
