His priority is to make sure clients receive services based on their unique needs, including investment management, planning, trust, family governance and family office services.
“We are excited to add someone with the breadth of experience that Dexter brings to our team—combining financial management with his knowledge of the sports and entertainment industry,” said Todd Tautfest, Wilmington Trust’s managing director of Southeast Region Business Development. “Dexter will play an important role as we continue to grow our sports and entertainment practice in Atlanta.”
Prior to joining Wilmington Trust, Conner was a financial planning specialist with Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. His professional licenses include the Series 7, 66, 31, Life & Health Insurance and Variable Products.
Conner earned an MBA within Emory University’s Executive Program, and a master’s degree from UCLA specializing in the sociology of media. His bachelor’s degree in Business Administration is from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he was a collegiate basketball player.
Conner currently serves on the board of directors of Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company, and the advisory board for the Andrew J. Young Foundation. He previously served on the Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council board of directors, and as a long-term volunteer at Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation.
Conner is a member of SAG-AFTRA, and has performed in films, television, and commercials. He received a best supporting actor nomination at the Chattanooga Theatre Center, and performed with the Heritage Reparatory Theatre Company and the Beverly Hills Theatre Ensemble. As a producer, Conner created online film and television courses offered through colleges around the country. He also served as executive producer of gospel albums, which appeared on Billboard’s Gospel Music charts.
“Working with individuals in entertainment and sports throughout my life has provided a unique perspective on their financial challenges,” said Conner. “Holistic financial planning is essential to helping them structure their financial future. Wilmington Trust has the resources and reputation to serve this demographic at the highest level.”
