David Bell serves as an Executive Vice President with Cannon Financial Institute. David lives by the motto never expect more of others than you do of yourself and give no less than everything to the cause. It is this belief that motivates David to empower others to achieve great things.

David started his career as a special agent with Northwestern Mutual Life. He amassed a successful practice working with high net worth clients and their families. Given his collegiate background as a student athlete, David developed a specialty with the professional athlete. His ability to understand the pressures of high profile success led to a broader client base of entertainers (and their families) as well.

In 1993, David began to experience more and more client / advisor frustration with a “one-track” financial focus; the client need extended far beyond just insurance and risk management. Determined to change this mindset, David joined Cannon Financial Institute as a full time instructor in 1999. Since then David has worked tirelessly to create a positive impact not only on the advisor and the client, but also the industry. He serves as a subject matter expert in all areas of practice management, client acquisition, growth and retention, as well as overall wealth management.

David is known for his infectious personality and charismatic instruction. In addition to a rewarding career David has two children and maintains a seat in any given stadium every football Saturday.
