40-Under-40: Where Are They Now?

Checking in with Pete Ingraham



Name: Pete Ingraham

Year Named 40-Under-40: 2007

Current position: Vice President, Financial Advisor Morgan Stanley Naples

Career highlights since 40-Under-40: Morgan Stanley Naples recruited me from UBS Bonita Springs, where I’ve continued to grow and improve my practice. 2017 was my fifth consecutive year being named a Five Star Wealth Manager Award Winner in Gulfshore Life. I became a Wealth Manager to, and have developed a wonderful friendship with, best-selling author Dan Millman (Way of the Peaceful Warrior). After reading the book, I wrote a letter to Dan, explaining how much I enjoyed the book and what it meant to me. I went on to elaborate on what I do, and asked him to contact me if he thought I could meaningfully help him. A few weeks later, he called me. We met and within a few months, he became a client (and has been for over a decade).

What did being named 40-Under-40 mean to you? It helped create awareness and visibility in the community and enhanced my reputation, legitimacy and authenticity. It truly helped me help more people in deeply meaningful ways.
