Knowing the success rate for an insurance agent was only about 3 percent, he knew he would have to work hard. In 1975, he went independent, which began the history of Murdock Financial Group. Realizing that financial planning was the future, he decided to continue his education and gain certification. At that point, he enrolled in the American College in Bryn Mawr, Pa., in 1986. While working full time, he did his coursework in the evenings and weekends. In 1991, he took the last of the final exams and graduated with the professional designation of Chartered Financial Consultant. He always said that was the smartest thing he ever did in terms of significantly increasing his knowledge and ability to service clients. As time went on, Tim’s vision of the group continued to expand and momentum grew as the firm gained more team members and eventually a business partner.
Tim was the senior partner of Murdock Banner Financial Group. Tim’s education includes a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Central Missouri State University.
