Randy Fairfax


“Seeing people grow and use their resources to positively impact themselves, their families and their communities gives me joy. We unlock wealth to enhance lives.”

Randy encourages his clients to steward their resources. Not only their wealth, but their wisdom, values, time and talents, too. In so doing, he goes beyond wealth management to improve business and family relationships as well. We often hear comments like this from Randy’s clients: “Our family would not be as close as we are, and with the business in a strong position to succeed without Randy.” Or this, “I would not have made it and flourished after my husband’s death without Highland.”

“We help families steward the wealth they have in line with their goals to transition their values and their resources. This requires consideration of how best to allocate their resources for growth that meets risk and return expectations, business succession, and tax-efficient wealth transfer.”

Randy’s drawn to adventure. Whether playing basketball across Europe (admittedly, a few years ago), establishing fresh water wells in Africa, or hiking and rafting in our national parks, he sees every adventure as an opportunity to learn, adapt and serve. Alongside Randy for every wild ride has been his current and childhood sweetheart, Courtney, and today, their family of three children, their spouses and nine grandchildren.
