Who We Are
Evan Beach, CFP®, EA, AWMA®
I’m Evan Beach, founder and president of Exit 59 Advisory.
After graduating from the University of Delaware and Georgetown University, I pursued a career in financial planning. At age 26, I earned my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification from the College for Financial Planning. I also hold the IRS Enrolled Agent license, which allows for a unique approach to planning that can be beneficial to retirees eager to minimize lifetime taxes and maximize income.
My extensive experience in retirement income and tax planning as well as practice management has attracted industry and media attention. I’m a columnist for Kiplinger and the Journal of Financial Planning and a frequent contributor to Yahoo Finance, CNBC, Credit.com, TheStreet.com, Bloomberg News and U.S. News and World Report, among others. I also serve as a special topics instructor at Texas Tech University’s highly regarded undergraduate and graduate personal financial planning programs.
A native of Bethesda, Maryland, I’ve spent almost all my adult life in the capital region. I live in Old Town, Alexandria, with my wife, Ali, daughters Viv and Lucy, and dog, Tenley. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and playing competitive soccer in local adult leagues.
