Wilde Wealth Management Group, an award-winning financial services firm that provides comprehensive retirement, investment, real estate, insurance, legal and tax planning services all under one roof, is pleased to announce Amalea Zegarzewski has joined the firm as a financial advisor. In her role, Zegarzewski will focus on helping clients be prepared for critical financial events in their lives such as retirement, strategic investment planning and caring for future generations. She will work from the firm’s recently expanded Scottsdale headquarter office, which is located at 7025 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale.
Prior to joining Wilde, Zegarzewski worked in the industry since 2013, most recently as a financial consultant with Fidelity Investments and financial advisor with AXA Equitable. While with both, Zegarzewski earned several recognitions, notably the Mary Seebeck Life Insurance Award three consecutive years and Top Financial Consultant in the West Division multiple years.
“I made the move to Wilde Wealth for several reasons, but chief among them are the client and community centered way in which they do business and work together,” says Zegarzewski. “Authenticity, transparency and integrity are at the core of what we do, and Wilde shares my unabashed commitment to each of these core values.”
Initially intent on going into medicine, Zegarzewski – an Ahwatukee native – earned her bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Purdue University. While in college, Zegarzewski worked for a nonprofit, focused on their finance and accounting issues. The work spurred her interest in helping people and organizations navigate important decisions as it relates to money as a long-term career.
Zegarzewski holds Series 7, 63 and 66 securities registrations, as well as the Arizona Life, Accidents and Health Insurance Producers License.
“When we endeavored to double our physical headquarters in 2021, we announced our plans to actively look to build seasoned female financial professionals to join chief compliance officer Janenne Lackey and myself in leadership roles within the organization,” says Jackie Yoder, chief operating officer of Wilde Wealth Management. “Amalea joining our team helps us to continue our commitment to diversity and inclusion at every level of our business.”
Zegarzewski is married and busy around the clock thanks to their 9-month-old son, Weber, as well as their dogs, Luna, and Mookie. She looks forward to taking part in the Wilde for Arizona Community Outreach program within Wilde Wealth as soon as this fall, which is focused on collectively giving back time and fundraising for important nonprofit causes across Arizona.
