Will Skeean is a Senior Financial Advisor serving clients from our Atlanta and Dallas offices and is Chairman of the Board at Edge. His responsibilities include working with the team to develop the firm’s investment philosophy and outlook, identify attractive investment opportunities for clients, and allocate the resources of the firm to ensure our clients receive the highest level of service. He communicates our thinking on economic and investment matters to our clients and the community.
He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where his father built an engineering-focused technology company before moving it to Atlanta where Will grew up. From a young age, Will was surrounded by entrepreneurs and worked with several of his parents’ businesses during childhood through college. Learning work ethic within a family business, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University. Upon graduation, he joined Goldman Sachs where he led asset allocation and manager selection for a significant investment team while also earning the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation before becoming a co-founder of Edge.
His career at Edge has enabled Will to do two of his favorite things – travel and meet people. He loves learning the stories of entrepreneurs like his father and how they came to be where they are. Will also has a passion for studying trends and predicting the effects of future events on global markets. He and our team visit the countries where we invest and strive to view their economic situations through the appropriate cultural lenses.
In addition to his travels on behalf of Edge and our clients, Will and his wife enjoy new cultural experiences and have visited many countries in Central and South America, Eastern and Western Europe, and Asia. He loves to cook and dabbles in various styles, including frequent use of a Big Green Egg. Will is a member of the Board of Trustees at the Atlanta History Center and serves as Chair of its Investment Committee.
In his downtime, Will enjoys spending time with his wife Corinne and chasing his son Clayton and daughter Natalie around the playground.
