Jackie Kleinman, CFP™, is the principal of KB Financial Advisors. Jackie started her career in financial planning in 1996 at an insurance and brokerage firm. She enjoyed the client interaction, but was bothered by the conflict of interest inherent in commission planning. In 2002, as an advocate of fee-only planning, she opened her doors to assist clients in growing their wealth and enhancing their lifestyles by combining investment advice, taxes and setting each individual’s priorities and goals.
Since passing the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exam in November 2009, Landon has dedicated himself to the needs of busy young professionals. Before joining KB Financial Advisors in 2012, Landon founded Cumberland Wealth Planners in 2010 to serve clients in Nashville, TN. Landon took over the On Your Way to Wealth program in 2014 to help KB Financial Advisors further expand their work with young tech professionals in San Francisco who have stock options.
When he’s not on a plane to San Francisco, Landon lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Melissa and their three children.
Jim Brightman has been a CPA in San Francisco since 1998 and received his masters in taxation at Golden Gate University. Jim specializes in stock option tax strategies, including AMT considerations and optimizing long-term capital gains. He has substantial experience developing tax-efficient ways to handle the timing of exercise and sale of vested stock options.
KB Financial Advisors helps young, tech professionals make the most of their stock options and build wealth. Just like your career, stock options, and wealth, our firm is quickly growing. Here’s how we got here:

Jim Brightman, CPA working within his own CPA practice starts working with tax issues related to stock options and tech industry professionals. Jim was writing blog posts on Yahoo in the 90s about stock options, income tax, and the alternative minimum tax.
