B. Darby Brower
President & Financial Advisor
Upon graduation, Darby joined NCNB bank and began working in its commercial banking sector. A promotion in 1987 returned him to Jacksonville, where he assumed responsibilities as manager of the NCNB Private Banking office. In 1991, Darby began his career with Lincoln Financial Advisors as a financial planner and employee benefits consultant.
From 1993 to 1998, he served as an Investment Sales Specialist for Lincoln Financial Advisors in addition to operating his own practice. His professional accomplishments include the Million Dollar Roundtable (qualifying for this award 13 times in his career) and the Chairman’s Council for Lincoln Financial Advisors. In 2003, Darby merged his individual practice to form Montoya Brower and Associates. The joint-venture served for seven years.*
In January of 2010, Darby opened his new business Brower Financial Group with a new location at 250 A1A Suite 100 in the North Wing of the Florida Bank Building in Ponte Vedra Beach. Darby was joined by many of his long-standing colleagues. The team is excited to provide a warm atmosphere and companionship for their clients. With reliability and integrity, they continue to provide: personalized financial, retirement, and investment planning; individual investment accounts, individual and group insurance; and group retirement plans.
Darby’s character has always been one of genuine care for clients, employees, and their families. The move also opened the doorway for Brower Financial Group to accept a wonderful offer to make a dynamic change of Broker/Dealers to J.W. Cole Financial, Inc.
Darby and his wife Jennifer have been married since November of 1988 and have two sons and one daughter. Their children represent the sixth generation with Floridian roots. Carrying on very active family traditions, the Brower’s are extremely involved in community philanthropic groups including Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Beaches Museum and Historical Society. Darby is an active member of Christ Episcopal Church in Ponte Vedra Beach and serves on the Finance Committee.
Away from his office, Darby and his family enjoy boating, fishing, and all forms of water sports. They enjoy traveling as a family and spending time in their family cottage in Southport, Maine.
