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.

Spring Fever
Spring Fever
It’s that time of year again. When our cars have this yellow film on them, it’s 75 degrees on Monday and 45 on Tuesday, and we all seem to sneeze a lot more than we did a few weeks ago. It’s Springtime and with the longer days come Easter eggs and blooming flowers. It’s also...
SVB Financial Collapse – Why You Should Care
SVB Financial Collapse – Why You Should Care
The events that started to unfold at the end of last week at Silicon Valley Bank (parent company SVB Financial) may seem like a world away from East Tennessee, but it definitely brought flashbacks of the 2008-2009 financial crisis. While the differences are significant between the two events, and to elaborate on those is beyond...

Our clients and social media followers know that we have been encouraging savers to pull money from their low yielding bank accounts and put it into short-term Treasury obligations. If you do, you’ll earn more than 5% (annualized) for six month to 12 month terms. When considering your options there are subtle differences between the...
Your Time is Priceless
Your Time is Priceless
At this time of year, I always struggle and worry that “there’s not enough hours in the day.” The start of Spring is a convergence of my favorite time personally and my most challenging time professionally. On the work side, tax season runs from the beginning of the year through April. Additionally, it’s baseball season...
