Jeff Hall, CFP®
In 1999, Jeff began his investment career with a regional brokerage firm after a successful four years as a student athlete at the University of Tennessee where he was a captain of the 1998 National Championship football team. While at UT, he was a four-time All-SEC placekicker as well as a four-time Academic All-SEC student athlete and was named SEC kicker of the decade for the 1990s. He continues to hold the career scoring record at the University of Tennessee as well as the longest field goal made in the state of Tennessee at 62 yards.
Jeff will be the first to tell you that success in one area of life does not automatically translate to success elsewhere. His transition to the real world was filled with failures and disappointments. Thankfully, Lytle Rather and Chris Kittrell made him the first employee at Rather & Kittrell in 2002, and as a result of their belief in him he dedicated his professional career to helping others avoid the same financial mistakes he had made and instead, be good stewards of their time, talents, resources, and relationships. Almost 10 year later, Jeff became a partner at Rather & Kittrell which solidified a succession plan for the firm.
Jeff holds a BS in Business Administration with a major in marketing and minor in speech communications from the University of Tennessee. He has earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM certification as well as the Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA®) certification after completing coursework at the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania.
In 2014, Jeff authored Beyond the White Coat to help physicians and the professionals that serve them navigate the financial challenges in the midst of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
Jeff has the privilege of speaking to various groups about the importance of sound money management and contributing to the Sunday edition of the Knoxville News Sentinel, and he is passionate about serving a select group of clients who have entrusted him with over $300 million in assets.
He has the honor of being married to his best friend, Stacey, and he is the proud father of three of the happiest kids you’ll ever meet, AJ, Hadley and Olivia. They live in Farragut, Tennessee, and are actively involved in local and overseas Christian ministries.
