A native of Northern California, Daryl began his career in financial services in 2000 with a Fortune 100 company in Sacramento, California. Swiftly becoming a top producer, he was promoted and in due course held responsibilities for recruiting, developing, and leading 150-plus agents/financial advisors with more than $1 billion in assets under care. Pursuing autonomy and ready to put his vision and insights into action, he formed his own firm, first as a hybrid and then as an RIA. It was at this time that Daryl began his partnership with Sowell Management.
After a robust eight-year relationship, Daryl accepted an invitation in 2020 to join the Sowell Management team. He started as chief operating officer and became president, responsible for taking the company to the next peak of growth, which includes Trek Wealth. Daryl’s love of people shines through and carries into his work as a servant leader. He is particularly passionate about financial advisors and the vital mission they execute daily. After more than 20 years, Daryl considers himself to be a true seasoned leader in finance. His career has spanned both corporate, business ownership and community involvement.
Daryl is an outdoor enthusiast and food and wine aficionado. By far, his pride and joy is his family. With the love of his life, Tammy, they are raising two boys of great character and faith – Jake and Nate.
"Experiences with my wife, Tammy, are a number one priority, and Napa Valley is our favorite place on the planet. We enjoy visiting smaller, family wineries. An appreciation for wine runs deep with me and permeates all parts of my life. I'm a people person, and enjoying great food and wine – and sharing that with great people – is a passion. Life is too short not to spend it that way."
