Our Story Rick Scruggs founded Financial Designs in 1983 in response to the challenges he had experienced as a business owner. Working with multiple partners and conflicting agendas gave him insights as to how he would design a company from the ground up. The evolving Financial Designs team has worked with business owners, professional practitioners, and individual clients and their families wherever they have needed help on the planning spectrum. Rick's vision is to focus exclusively on our clients and to serve as an advocate on their behalf. By doing right by our clients we positively impact the community that sustains us. Being a business continuity and success(ion) planning firm provides a unique opportunity to serve the community where we live. We invite you to take the time to work with us.
