Paul Auslander, CFP®
Director of Financial Planning
As Director of Financial Planning at ProVise Management Group, LLC, Paul Auslander is part of a sophisticated team of experienced advisers that consult with high net worth clients about their family offices, business valuations and financial and estate planning. He has dedicated nearly 30 years to the development of financial planning as a recognized and respected profession. Previous to his role at ProVise, he was the co-founder and CEO of American Financial Advisors, Inc. until his retirement from that position in 2013.
Paul was elected to the Board of Directors of the central Florida chapter of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) in 2004 and served two terms as the chapter’s president. In 2008, he was elected to the national FPA’s (Denver) Board of Directors and was elected the organization’s president in 2011. He went on to serve as Chairman and is also the past Chair of the FPA of Florida.
In 2007, Paul was selected by Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, Alex Sink, to serve on the state’s first Financial Literacy Council for a four year term. The council was created by the Florida Legislature to study the financial problems that affect consumers, particularly young persons, seniors, working adults and small business owners, which arise from a lack of basic knowledge of financial matters. The council prepared recommendations to develop programs and resources to help individuals increase their knowledge and understanding of these complex issues.
Paul’s community involvement includes acting as the current Vice-Chairman of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter, the dolphin. He also serves on both the Entertainment and Finance Committees of the Belleair Country Club. Paul is frequently quoted in the press and appears regularly on CNBC, Bloomberg and local media outlets. He attended the University of Kentucky and Columbia University, and now lives with his wife, Kimberly, in Belleair.
