ABOUT BROWN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT
JOHNNY BROWN

I am the President and financial advisor at Brown Capital Management, LLC in Little Rock, Arkansas. I’ve been in the investment industry since 1999 and have experience managing investments through two of the worst recessions and stock market bear markets in U.S. history (2000 – 2003 Technology Bust and the 2008 – 2009 Great Recession caused by the Sub Prime Mortgage Financial Crisis). What sets me apart from other financial advisors is my eight years of experience as an equity analyst. In this role I developed a skill set of analyzing and valuing investments that is unmatched by the average financial advisor. I believe this unparalleled understanding of the investments that I recommend to my clients is key to helping them achieve their financial goals.

I greatly enjoy bringing this level of knowledge to the table as I work with individuals, families, small businesses, and foundations to develop investment strategies designed to minimize risk and maximize returns using some of the most effective financial methods, such as Modern Portfolio Theory, Behavioral Finance, Behavioral Economics, and Value Investing. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree majoring in Finance from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Reynolds Business School. I hold the FINRA Series 65 license for financial advisors, and a license to sell life and health insurance in the state of Arkansas.

KELLY HITT

I have worked in the financial services industry since 1998, including 14 years at Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. as an advisor and paraplanner. At Brown Capital Management, I serve as a financial advisor and the Director of Client Service. My enthusiasm lies in getting to work with people on a daily basis and developing mutually satisfying relationships with our clients. I work with Johnny as part of a team providing wealth management, retirement planning, and insurance solutions for individuals, families, small businesses, and foundations.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. But after a few years in the environmental protection industry, my interest in working directly with people led me to the financial services industry. I hold the FINRA Series 65 license for financial advisors, and a license to sell life and health insurance in the state of Arkansas.

GREG GILLIS 

I am a Certified Financial Planner™ and one of my primary focuses is formulating strategies designed to eliminate income tax during retirement years, thereby stretching retirement dollars.  In addition to providing this service for individuals, I also coach other financial advisors across the country, helping them implement these strategies for their own clients.  I graduated from Hendrix College with a degree in Religion, and hold a FINRA Series 65 and life insurance license.  My wife, Tammy, and I live in Benton with our daughter, Riley, and our four-legged child, Landry.
