Vince Nelson

Financial Representative

Vince grew up in the Highland Park area of Dallas, Texas. With a family mix of half artists and half bankers, Vince had the benefit of enjoying both worlds. At UNT, he majored in Vocal Performance and used that degree in the performing arts. Vince also found his passion for leadership and business and worked in banking. Eventually he found his ultimate passion was helping people plan for their future.

Prior to joining Gilhang & Hays Financial Management Group, LLC, Vince’s work experience centered around executive leadership for both at profit and not for profit corporations that included Bank of America, Fidelity Investments and several churches, as an executive and senior pastor.
Having been a business leader for decades, Vince has learned that being able to help people with only one part of their wealth building plan can lead to serious gaps in their financial plans. It takes a comprehensive, holistic approach to create a solid plan that looks at all aspects of wealth building, asset protection and tax planning strategies. Through his tireless efforts he has been recognized with a multitude of prestigious awards including, Fort Worth’s Hometown Hero for outstanding philanthropic work and Top Investment Advisor for Fidelity Investment, three years running.

When Vince isn't helping clients build better futures, he can be found traveling and backpacking the world. He and his wife have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, hiked the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, and backpacked the Kalalau Trail in Kauai, Hawaii. Additionally, he and his wife co-authored a hiking guidebook titled "The Kalalau Trail Guidebook: Hiking to Eden." Vince is also the author of "Child of the King," that chronicles his personal journey on discovering the incredible value and worth that each person already possesses.
