OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mariner Wealth Advisors, the national wealth advisory firm ranked in the top two on Barron's list of Top 20 Independent Advisory Firms in both 2016 and 2017, today announced it has refocused on its national expansion efforts through the addition of two senior wealth advisors, in Omaha, Nebraska.
Joining the firm as senior wealth advisors are Jim Siemonsma and Ed Meekins, both former advisors at a financial services firm in Omaha. Siemonsma and Meekins bring with them 19 years and 17 years of experience, respectively, and together served clients with more than $600 million in assets.

"After many discussions with the firm's executives and advisors, we are confident this new relationship will allow us to more effectively help our clients achieve their long-term goals."
According to Marty C. Bicknell, chief executive officer and president of Mariner Wealth Advisors, "Occasionally, I meet people who I immediately know share our firm's focus and commitment to putting clients first. Jim and Ed are two such advisors. I am thrilled they have decided to join us in our efforts to provide unrivaled wealth advice to clients throughout the region."
