Billy Stanage Jr. founded the Wealth Management Group, LLC, in 2002 to help small business owners, individuals, and professionals pursue their financial goals. As a registered financial advisor in the state of New Mexico, Mr. Stanage is committed to helping clients increase and preserve capital through an extensive line of products and services, including diverse financial experience and personalized service.
Mr. Stanage, a native New Mexican, began his business career alongside his father at Valley Welder Supply Company, their family business founded in 1936. For 22 years, his father taught him how to operate a business utilizing the values of hard work, discipline, and justice for all. In 1994, these same values captured the heart of Mr. Stanage’s business operations assistant—now lovely wife Tiffani, a New Mexico State graduate—during a Lobo vs. Aggies football game.
In 1996, Mr. Stanage lost his business mentor. He says, “I lost the best father, friend, and business partner I would ever have.” Despite this tremendous loss, he was determined to start a new chapter of business development and improve New Mexico’s business community. Mr. Stanage sold Valley Welder Supply Company and became a wealth management advisor.
In 2002, Mr. Stanage founded the Wealth Management Group, LLC (WMG), dedicated to providing innovative financial strategies that help clients pursue high investment returns with the lowest amount of risk. He became a member of the Million Dollar Round Table-Top of the Table by 2007. Today, he strives for the WMG experience to be synonymous with responsive financial client services that help small business owners, individuals, and professionals pursue their financial goals. From the small business owner benefit needs to 401(k) trustee planning, WMG is committed to helping clients achieve their long-term financial objectives.
When Mr. Stanage is not working for his clients, he is inspiring youth leaders to pursue their personal goals. He enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf with his daughter. Mr. Stanage is the founder of the League of Exceptional Gentlemen and maintains active roles in the Sandoval County Business Builders Kiwanis Club and the Million Dollar Roundtable-Top of the Table.
He says, “I’m committed to living up to the business values my dad exemplified.” With the help of the entire WMG team, Mr. Stanage continues to set higher standards of performance, while building a community force to be reckoned with.
