Kevin Smithwick

Partner, Investment Advisor Representative

Kevin Smithwick grew up in Brevard County, Florida. Following high school, Kevin attended the University of Florida until the events of September 11, 2001 triggered deep patriotic feelings. Kevin joined the United States Army and selected Aviation as a career field, specifically CH47-D Chinook helicopters. During his military duty, Kevin completed two combat tours and an unaccompanied tour in South Korea.

It was during his time in the Army that Kevin completed his undergraduate degree at Columbia College earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He continued his education and received a Master of Business Administration degree from Webster University. In late 2010 he returned to Melbourne, Florida to begin his career as a financial advisor. Kevin, with his brother Shannon, co-founded Foresight Wealth Solutions in 2013 to bring a team approach to financial planning. In 2023 Foresight Wealth Solutions merged with the former Gallo and Russell to bring an even greater client experience to the Space Coast.

Kevin has had a love for the financial service industry his entire life. In high school he worked with a team at Dean Witter to gain experience. While serving his first tour in Iraq, his family suffered a tragedy with the death of his father. During the grieving process he realized that he wanted to help families prepare for life's events.

In his free time, Kevin and his wife are very involved in philanthropic endeavors. Most weekends you will find them traveling the State of Florida for charity dinners, raising funds for great organizations like Shriners Children’s Florida. They are also avid football fans and travel frequently to Wisconsin to watch their Green Bay Packers, “Go Pack Go!”

Kevin often says that he has achieved a high level of success by holding to a few simple life rules, "Always do what's in the client's best interest and treat others the way I would like to be treated."
