T. Warren Bass Founder & Partner

Warren Bass has an innate interest in people and technology along with a fiercely independent streak. That independent thinking and eagerness to get the most out of life led him to take a less traveled path that eventually prepared him for the perfect career as a financial advisor.

Over the years, Warren took classes that interested him but didn’t like the idea of having to pay for some of the classes a college or university insisted he takes to complete a degree. In 1985, he decided to do some research into what his options were. Soon, he had a plan: Warren took a break from college and joined the U.S. Coast Guard, where he could be of service, “learn by doing,” and be out on the water, which he’s always loved. From 1985-1993, Warren served in the U.S. Coast Guard, attaining a final rank of Radioman First Class. This put him at the heart of cutting-edge communications technology that eventually became what we know as email and the internet.
