The Zale Group began as a result of the growing complexity in the Financial Services field. No single Financial Advisor can be an expert of every tool at his disposal while still delivering excellent service to his clients. Preston realized this early on and has been building his team since 2003. You need complementary team members with varying skills, and you need to work with experts in other fields to deliver high-quality, proven solutions.
