Our History


Norman Wilson, Co-Founder

Founded in December 1987, Asset Advisors believes in conservative, stable financial management for clients who want to focus on achieving both their financial and personal goals over a lifetime.

Focusing on profitability in long-term investments, Norman Wilson and George Rush emphasized reliably servicing a select group of clients by focusing on individualized service. Both men committed to managing accounts according to personal direction provided by clients and by utilizing thorough research on leading companies in strong industries. They believed that discipline, patience and perspective combined with a focus on long-term investing provides clients the assurance they need to survive market extremes.

Before combining their talents to establish Asset Advisors, Norman and George had years of experience in financial management. Norman served as Vice President of Morris Communications Corporation in Augusta where he invested and oversaw the retirement assets of the Corporation’s employees. George spent time in Charlotte and Miami with NCNB Corporation. Serving in the Capital Markets Group of NCNB, George held sales and trading roles in bond and interest rate swap markets, effectively managing market risk for the bank and corporate clients.

Today, Asset Advisors operates with the same principles on which the firm was established three decades ago.
