Argent Employee Spotlight – Tim Quinn

Q. What led you to Argent and what makes it unique?

A. I joined Argent in October 2018 after more than 35 years in wealth management with a large national bank firm. I was attracted to Argent because of its excellent corporate reputation in the markets we serve. I knew several members of the senior management team well, and I felt we shared a common vision for serving clients. Argent has the resources and expertise which top-notch trust-based wealth management firms must possess.

Q. Why do you enjoy working at Argent?

A. I feel very fortunate and energized to be here at a time when we are undergoing growth in both our legacy markets and new markets throughout the south.

Q. What is a random fact about you?

A. I grew up in a small town in north Louisiana where my parents owned the equally small local newspaper. My wife and I have two daughters and two young granddaughters, so I know a lot about dolls, tea parties and all the songs from the Frozen movies!

Laughter is a big part of my personality. I was always the class clown growing up, so my childhood idols were comedians like Jonathan Winters, Tim Conway, and Don Knotts. Little did I know then that laughter has real health benefits. It can reduce stress, relieve pain, help connect people emotionally and improve immunity by increasing the flow of oxygen to the heart and brain.


Q. What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Argent?

A. At this stage in my career path, I am really interested in being a better mentor for my Argent colleagues. I benefited greatly from folks that stepped in and advised me along my path. I’d like to pass along not only some of the technical tasks that are needed in our industry, but also to provide insights, counsel and life lessons in an effort to pay it forward.

What is your favorite quote?

A. One of my favorite authors is Ralph Waldo Emerson, the 19th century essayist, who wrote:

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well .”
