Senior Vice President
Neil Taylor joined think2perform following 34 years of executive leadership, both domestically and internationally, with a Fortune 250 company.
In his first 10 years he started a successful personal planning practice and built the 2nd fastest growing branch (out of 135) in Ameriprise.
He then went to England to start a new financial planning company for American Express. Starting from scratch, in 3 years as SVP of Sales, he grew the sales group from zero Advisors to 405, along with 22 leaders, in 14 offices across England.
Neil was then asked to come back to the U.S. to lead one of the largest change initiatives ever with Ameriprise, a project to redesign the entire sales organization. This resulted in changes in technology, hiring, training, management structure and sales support. The initiative touched every part of the company from sales to products to marketing.
Following that, as Region Vice President, Neil ran both the independent broker and employee sides of the business in the Northwest for Ameriprise. His Region was always a top performer in sales, financial planning and advisor retention.
Neil will focus on improving execution and implementation of strategic plans, leading change, executive leadership and coaching, improving team and relationship effectiveness, developing emotional competence and better decision making, and creating effective employee engagement.
He graduated from Central Washington University with a degree in Business Administration.
Neil and his wife Mary Jean have been married for 34 years and reside in Seattle Washington.
