Longtime BKD Wealth Advisors leader to retire

Posted online

Jack Thurman, the longtime managing partner of Springfield-based BKD Wealth Advisors LLC, announced plans to retire.

Thurman, who’s led the BKD LLP wealth advisory division since 2000, is scheduled to retire May 31, 2021, according to a news release.

“I can’t say enough about the job Jack has done in developing the BKDWA practice, and we’ll miss his presence and charisma greatly,” BKD CEO Ted Dickman said in the release.

Thurman’s successor will be Steve Toomey, according to the release. Toomey, according to his LinkedIn profile, works out of Kansas City as a BKD Wealth Advisors principal and has been a BKD employee for 17 years.

Toomey, who is scheduled to become managing partner of BKD Wealth Advisors on June 1, will work with Thurman over the next year to smooth the transition, according to the release.

“I look forward to seeing Steve continue growing as a firm leader as he forges ahead,” Dickman said in the release.

BKD officials could not be reached immediately this morning for further comment.

Under Thurman, BKD Wealth Advisors in 2019 crossed the $4 billion threshold in assets under management. The figure had doubled in the last seven years. The advisory firm was founded in 1998.
