LeConte Founder

Kevin Painter

“The real art of conducting consists in transitions.” Gustav Mahler

As an ensemble musician, I learned from an early age that the performing group was only as strong as their conductor. That individual had the ability to lead the entire group through the key changes, starts and finishes to achieve perfection. That’s precisely what I do for our clients at LeConte Wealth Management.

In my 20-year career, my focus has always been helping people make good choices.  Whether it’s how to create a charitable giving strategy that will help a worthy non-profit for years to come after their passing, or how to pass hard-earned wealth down to the next generation in the most tax efficient manner, I’ve always been passionate about helping clients realize those possibilities.  I focus on the feelings and emotions of financial decisions and to help clients not just visualize what their goals are, but how to reach them.

Kevin is a co-founder of and Managing Partner of LWM.  He also serves as the Chief Compliance Officer. He creates charitable giving strategies and complex financial planning outcomes for the firm’s clients and serves as the Chief Financial Officer at LeConte.

He holds an MBA in Finance from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Political Science from Furman University.

Kevin began his career in the Trust Department of AmSouth Bank in Birmingham, Alabama where he focused on creating risk adjusted portfolios for high net worth clients in central Alabama.  He then joined SunTrust Investment Services as a Private Financial Advisor in Tennessee, where he partnered with Hoy Grimm to advise high net worth clients throughout the region.

He has served as Chair of the board of the United Way of Blount County, Chair of the board of Leadership Blount, and as the VIP Chair of the Blount Partnership.  He’s led multiple fundraising campaigns with United Way and the Clayton Center for the Arts at Maryville College , and has been involved in various roles with New Hope Children’s Advocacy Center, Maryville City Schools Foundation and Community Food Connection.   He and his family are actively involved at First United Methodist Church in Maryville, where he sings in the choir and performs in worship as an instrumentalist.

He and his wife, Vanessa, live in Maryville with their four children.

A Lesson from Chiropractic Care
A Lesson from Chiropractic Care
Have you ever received a flyer that made you take action? I recently received a flyer from one of the new businesses in town for a free chiropractic exam (side note: I’d never been to a chiropractor), making me consider how taking preventive actions is essential not just for our physical health but also for...

It’s that time of year again, AGAIN. The time where I make the annual resolution/self-help/change your life January blogpost. You’ve likely seen a few of these on your social media feed or news broadcast. I’ve written many of them over the years (In One Year and Out the Other in 2023 was the most recent)...

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often” – Winston Churchill As 2023 has come to a close, and we look forward to what 2024 has in store, it is a great time to take a step back and reflect on the good, bad and ugly from 2023. Were goals met?...
