The annual award is the highest acknowledgment of the firm for financial advisors and reflects the dedication they consistently share with clients throughout the country. LFN has more than 8,000 affiliated advisors.

"These individuals have followed different paths to success, yet share common traits of our most successful advisors – ongoing commitment to their clients," said David Berkowitz, President of Lincoln Financial Network.

Currently, Katz is a "Prestige Planner" in the Sagemark Consulting Private Wealth Services Group, which comprises less than 1 percent of all Sagemark Planners. He specializes in helping retired individuals, owners of closely held businesses and other successful professionals satisfy charitable desires, and efficiently transfer their assets to future generations.

He earned a bachelor of business administration in finance from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. He is currently based in Paramus, NJ.
