Scott Pilchard has joined Farm Bureau Financial Services wealth management practice in Wickenburg.
As a wealth management advisor, Pilchard will primarily help Farm Bureau clients and members in Northern Arizona prepare for the future and protect what matters by providing financial planning, advisory services, and investment solutions to families, individuals and businesses.
Pilchard has 27 years of experience in wealth management and financial advisory services. His main office is located in Scottsdale, though he will be at the Wickenburg location two-three days a week. Tiffany Deloach is in the Wickenburg office to assist clients full-time during normal business hours Mondays – Fridays.
Pilchard, his wife, and 8-year-old triplets reside in Fountain Hills. Pilchard is extremely active in the Fountain Hills community, serving on the chamber board and having served as president of the rotary club. Now, he has started on his mission to offer his services and time to the Wickenburg community as well.
“I have done well in Fountain Hills,” he said. “My district manager thought I would be able to replicate what I did there, here in Wickenburg.”
On top of the aforementioned services to his community, Pilchard also runs a school supply donation giveaway program.
“This is my fourth year of doing the school supply program. I offer $100 of school supplies to the most deserving teacher every week. (Although these teachers are so committed to our kids; they all deserve it.),” he said. “I get a list of the supplies needed, order them on Amazon and take them in to the teacher with a big check.”
A photo with the teacher and the students is taken and posted it on the local Facebook page to announce the winner. The community can then nominate another teacher who it thinks should receive a donation for the following week.
“If the teachers here are anything like the teachers in Fountain Foothills, then they’re most likely paying for a lot of their students’ supplies out of pocket,” Pilchard said. “I’m looking forward to bringing it to the Hassayampa Elementary School.”
Pilchard is excited about becoming part of Wickenburg.
“I am looking forward to being part of the community. So far everyone here has been welcoming,” he said. “I’m always out at community events with a booth selling swag. I’ve heard team roping is big out here. I don’t know how to team rope, but I’ll be out sponsoring a lot of events.”
When he’s not busy helping clients secure their financial futures or serving his community, Pilchard can be found out enjoying the golf courses and lakes of Arizona.
