Since becoming a founding partner of Hill, Chesson and Woody in 1974, Earl Chesson has specialized in helping his clients meet their personal, business and philanthropic goals. As Hill, Chesson and Woody grew and flourished over the decades, the division specializing in student health insurance was sold to Blue Cross Blue Shield in 2013 and the employee benefits division was sold to Arthur Gallagher in 2016. Since the Gallagher purchase included acquisition of the Hill, Chesson and Woody name, the division of Hill, Chesson and Woody specializing in wealth and philanthropy strategies has been named Chesson Partners and will continue to be led by Earl.
In June, 2020, Chesson Partners became an affiliate of Capitol Financial Solutions, a full-service financial planning firm headquartered in Raleigh, NC, with offices also in Virginia and South Carolina. This affiliation will ensure continuation of the highest level of consultation and service to clients.
