San Diego-based LPL Financial announced today that Blake Mier, a Bloomington, Ill.-based financial advisor serving $230 million in assets, is joining the firm's broker-dealer, RIA and custodial platforms.

“My goal is to help my clients meet their financial goals and objectives, and I believe that by partnering with LPL I will be better able to do just that,” Mier said in comments released by LPL. “LPL doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, but instead offers a vast selection of products and services that I can choose from to best serve my clients’ needs. I am confident that making this move to LPL was the right decision for my clients and for my business.”

Mier, whose business operates as Mier Financial, previously worked as a financial advisor within the Wells Fargo Advisors network, according to the announcement. He will be joined at LPL by client relationship manager Katie Simpson.

Mier has been an advisor for 25 years, according to the announcement.

“We welcome Blake and Katie to the LPL community and applaud their commitment to forging long-term relationships with their clients,” said Scott Posner, LPL executive vice president of business strategy and growth, in released comments. “At LPL, we are committed to supporting advisors with innovative business products and solutions that provide flexibility and autonomy in how they serve their clients and grow their business. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Mier Financial.”
