BRYAN HASLING

SENIOR FINANCIAL PLANNER & TAX ADVISOR

Bryan is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ who found his passion for financial planning by first helping the people he cares about the most, his family and close friends. With clients, Bryan understands everyone’s situation and needs are different, which means every piece of advice is tailormade for them. He specializes in cash flow & savings, taxes, student loans, investments, and retirement planning.

In addition to his CFP® designation, he is also an IRS Enrolled Agent, which marks one of the highest degrees in tax education. Prior to joining JW Harrison, Bryan worked with financial planning firms in the Dallas-Ft Worth and Lubbock, TX areas, mostly working with high net worth families and business owners.

He attended Texas Tech University, where he studied Financial Planning & Economics. At TTU, he was chosen as the program’s “Outstanding Senior,” an honor given to its top student. In his free time, Bryan volunteers with non-profit groups, like Tax-Aid and VITA, and is highly involved with the National MS Society.

JOE HARRISON

FOUNDER & SENIOR FINANCIAL PLANNER

Joe has a deep knowledge of the various tools of money, including stock options and restricted shares, deferred comp and pension plans, real estate investments, debt instruments, and tax shelters. That technical knowledge is balanced with a respectful awareness of the emotional influence that money exerts.

Working for a start-up during the dot-com bubble, Joe watched co-workers go from euphoria to misery as they spent money they didn’t have from stock options that hadn’t vested and later became worthless. Years later, as a corporate executive, he saw peers lose huge opportunities for tax savings because they didn’t understand or properly manage their ESPP, restricted shares, deferred compensation, and myriad other benefits.

After decades of seeing first-hand how profoundly people’s lives can be affected by good and bad financial decisions, Joe founded JW Harrison to leverage that knowledge and help others.
