Professor Makes Investment News’ Top 40 Under 40

John Salter was selected as one of the top Financial Planners under 40.

Nominated and chosen from 1,200 nominations, an associate professor in Texas Tech’s College of Human Sciences was named to the Investment News’ Top 40 under 40 List, which consists of up-and-comers impacting the financial planning profession in different ways.

John Salter said he believes his dual roles as both a practicing financial planner and professor helped him stand out in the selection process.

“I love what I do on both sides, working with people and working with the students,” Salter said, “It’s the perfect package.”

Salter found out about his nomination in May and had to keep it a secret until the list was published. He said he was pleasantly surprised when he found out he received the honor.

“There are a lot of talented financial planners under 40, and I was happy to make the list,” Salter said.
