Professional Wealth Advisors, an independent wealth management firm with offices in Crystal Lake, Downers Grove and Des Plaines, hired Aaron Baddeley of the PGA Tour to serve as a brand ambassador.
In his late teens, Baddeley, a native of New Hampshire who was raised in Australia from age 2, was the youngest player ever to represent Australia in the World Amateur Teams Trophy, according to a news release from Professional Wealth Advisors. He won the Holden Australian Open as an amateur in 1999 and successfully defended his title in 2000.
After joining the PGA Tour in 2003, he won his first PGA Tour title in 2006 at the Verizon Heritage Classic. Baddeley won his second PGA Tour tournament in early 2007, and by September, he had entered the top 20 in World Golf Rankings. His ranking hit a career high of 16 after winning the Australian Masters at the end of 2007.
“Aaron is a world-class athlete who has won at all levels in his career,” Professional Wealth Advisors managing partner Stephen Potts said in a statement. “He has tremendous integrity, a strong work ethic and is highly respected by his peers. We believe Aaron Baddeley is a perfect fit.”
Baddeley said in a statement that serving as a brand ambassador for Professional Wealth Advisors is “a wonderful opportunity.”
Professional Wealth Advisors “says that ‘Wealth is about more than money,’ and that has always been true for me,” Baddeley said. “Wealth is about family, being able to make a difference and giving back. It provides freedom so your family is secure, you can help others and put your all into your passion. My passion is golf, and I am blessed to make it my career.”
Baddeley and his wife, Richelle, live in Scottsdale, Arizona, with their six children.
