VIKTRE Athlete Don Davey Leads Wealth Management Firm to Top Honor

Striving for greatness is nothing new to an athlete. No matter what level of sports competition, any athlete will tell you they have one goal above all others—to be the best.

Along the path to greatness, some athletes have the distinct honor to stand out among their peers and receive awards for their performance. Player of the Month, Most Valuable Player, All-Star, All-Pro, Pro Bowler and many more are all types of awards we have witnessed the best of the best receive throughout their careers.

For some athletes, transitioning to a career after sports can mean the end of the pursuit of being the best of the best and the accolades that come with it. However, that could not be further from the truth—just ask former NFL player and current VIKTRE athlete, Don Davey.

Davey, who you may have read about in his “My Career Change” story and “My NFL Draft Experience” story here on the VIKTRE Career Network, has taken the challenge of rising to the top in his career after sports to the next level.

Recently, that pursuit of greatness was recognized by the Jacksonville Business Journal as Davey’s company Disciplined Equity Management was named to their distinguished list of Top Wealth Manager Advisory Practices for 2017.Top Wealth

As someone who strives for greatness in everything he does, this honor meant a lot to Davey and his firm.

We reached out to him to discuss what it meant, and Davey stated, “I founded Disciplined Equity Management back in 1998 as a way to help a handful of my NFL teammates plan wisely, invest intelligently, and achieve all of their financial goals. Over the past 19 years, we have done exactly that for not only our pro athletes, but business owners, executives, physicians, retirement plans, and charitable endowments as well.”

Davey continued, “I am both humbled and honored to learn that DEM has been named one of Jacksonville’s Top Wealth Managers for the fourth consecutive year. I am living proof that when you do what you love, you never have to work a day in your life!”

On behalf of VIKTRE and the VIKTRE Career Network, we would like to congratulate Davey and his firm on their honor for the fourth consecutive year! His ascension to the top of the wealth management industry, along with his other pursuits, should be a great inspiration to all athletes when planning a career after sports.

If you want to get great tips for your career after sports, we highly suggest heading over to VIKTRE and following Davey right now! He is working with the team to put out great video features discussing his life and career path, and has plenty of tips and advice that would be key to any athlete’s life after sports.
