In a surprise announcement Holst decided to retire in June 2014 after 53 years of financial advice and service to his clients, friends, family and community. Holst is our Chairman Emeritus. Being Chairman Emeritus comes with lots of perks. For instance, he does not need to come to the office. He will always have a desk here (he’s used the same one for decades). He also likes to work and is planning on working on documenting his family’s history. The rest of the office of course loves having someone around to talk to about the markets and he’s seen 50 years of markets and that is something that is hard to replace.
On a more personal note he is married to Vida, originally from Starke Florida, and they have two sons. Jim who works at Beall Financial Planning and Holst, III who works in Atlanta. Both sons are married and have provided Holst and Vida with 6 grandkids they can spoil. Holst III & Patricia’s three are Logan, Avery and Riley; while Jim & Ann have Joyce Evelyn, Mary Lin, and Joshua.
