Dennis Way joined Stephens Private Client Group as a Senior Vice President in 2010 and has been a trusted consultant for more than 35 years. Dennis, in partnership with his son, Reese, and Donnie Whisenhunt, helps clients create and define comprehensive wealth management plans. “Throughout my career, my focus has always been to forge life-long partnerships with our clients.
