B. Gordon Tonnessen

Chief Operations Officer

Gordon has been working with Financial Advisors and helping them grow their 401k practices since 2009. When Gordon left the mechanical contracting field to enter the industry, he believed it was a temporary occupation, but he quickly grew to love working with both financial advisors and sales people. He considers himself a sales person who works for sales people.

After working for another company for several years, Gordon decided that the best way to improve his process for financial advisors was to start his own company. Along with his wife Andrea and business partner Dave K. Roy, Esq, Gordon cofounded the Warton Group in 2015. Gordon has directed the development of Warton’s appointment setting process. Today, thanks to Gordon’s leadership, the Warton Group is the industry leader in appointment setting and 401k prospecting with advisors closing approximately 30% of the plans they are referred out to.

Gordon and his wife live in Greenacres, Florida with their 5-year-old son Nicolas.  Gordon  is a veteran of the US Navy where he served as a Navy Corpsman. Gordon spends much of his spare time wreck-diving off the Florida keys.
