Sean Gould

Sean Gould, a proud Memphis native, has forged a dynamic career path blending financial acumen with a passion for providing elevated client experience. Sean attained his Bachelor of Accountancy and Master of Accountancy from the University of Mississippi in 2007 and 2008, respectively.

In 2008, Sean embarked on his professional journey with Ernst & Young, LLP, where he honed his skills as an audit associate. Sean contributed significantly to various high-profile contracts during his tenure, including AutoZone, Buckeye Technologies, Pinnacle Airlines, and Kirkland’s Home.

Driven by a desire to provide unparalleled financial guidance to his clients, Sean transitioned to wealth management when he joined Waddell & Associates as a wealth strategist in 2012. Sean’s entrepreneurial spirit directly reflects his family’s enduring legacy. Shaped by the pioneering vision of his grandfather, who established Gould’s Salon in 1932, and guided by the unwavering commitment of his father, who sustained its heritage, Sean has inherited a deep-rooted appreciation for the core principles and values of business. These foundational teachings serve as the bedrock of his client offerings today, imbuing them with a blend of tradition and innovation that sets him apart in the industry. That unwavering dedication and strategic vision led to Sean’s promotion to partner in 2022.

Sean is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional and a licensed Certified Public Accountant in Tennessee. He is an active member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Financial Planning Association, and the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is a board member of the Economic Club of Memphis and the Rotary Club of East Memphis. His dedication to excellence was further underscored by being honored with the prestigious Top Advisor Award in 2023, recognizing his outstanding contributions to the field.

When he’s not immersed in wealth strategy, Sean loves exploring new destinations around the globe with his wife, Amanda, and perfecting his golf swing. An avid sports enthusiast, Sean supports the Grizzlies, the Braves, and his alma mater, Ole Miss. Sean dreams of one day owning a lake house that he and Amanda can enjoy with their beloved doodle, Riley.
