Gaddis & Gaddis Wealth Management Celebrates 25 Years of Service
This year, Gaddis & Gaddis Wealth Management celebrates its 25th anniversary as a leading independent financial services firm with offices in Ada, Ardmore, Durant and McAlester.

In January 1995, Roger and Leigh Gaddis established the company at its headquarters office at 1530 Arlington Street in Ada. At the time, it was the only financial services firm outside the Ada downtown business district. To accommodate additional client service, the company opened offices in McAlester and Ardmore in 1998 and in Durant in 2005.

Throughout its 25-year history, Gaddis & Gaddis Wealth Management has maintained a commitment to independence, both in its approach to client service and to the financial service products offered to clients.

“We believe that independent thinking is essential to quality, client service and that working with an independent broker allows us to offer clients a full range of financial products to meet their individual needs,” Owner/Manager Roger Gaddis said.

“Based on our 25-year legacy of integrity, value and service, Gaddis & Gaddis Wealth Management is well-positioned for the future,” Gaddis said. “Backed by a quarter-century of industry experience, dedicated client service and commitment to the community, we’re poised for greater achievement for decades to come,” he said.
