As we approach the five-year anniversary of the founding of Impel Wealth Management, we are pleased to share with you that on November 8th, Crain’s Cleveland Business announced their 2021 list of Notable Wealth Advisors for Northeast Ohio. It is an honor to be included on this list, and it is truly a testament to the work of our entire team.
This local recognition stands alongside being named by Forbes/SHOOK Research as a Best in State Wealth Advisor for the past four years. More than anything, it affirms the work that we are doing on behalf of you, our trusted friends and clients. It is truly what drives and motivates us each day. It is also born out in the growth trajectory of Impel Wealth over the years, both in assets under management and in the number of referrals received.
A copy of the press release is included below. Please feel free to share this with friends and family members. We know that not everyone has a trusted advisor relationship that they can partner with for help along the road of their personal financial journey. We also know that during times of economic uncertainty and volatility, that many people have questions and concerns about their financial future.
With all deference to Freddie Mercury and Queen, Don’t Stop Us Now! The future is bright, and we are here to help. We are blessed to have the systems, resources and the desire to help you and your loved ones as we continue “Moving Life Forward”.

Our 46 Notable Wealth Managers differ in title and style, but share the same goal of providing ethical, honest and productive financial management and financial planning.
Their journeys began in places as varied and distant as Australia and Pakistan. They devote their free time to helping schools, foundations, women’s groups and the arts. They specialize in wealth management and financial planning, and carry titles that include president, founder, chief experience officer, chair and CEO. They coach advisors, manage mutual funds and are partners in various financial entities. They work for firms they founded, and for large banks and money management companies.
One nomination form described an advisor in a way that can apply to all: The honored individual has the ability “to understand the risk/reward of a given situation and the information needed to optimize that situation.”
Jesse Hurst, President, CEO and Founder Impel Wealth Management
Impel Wealth Management, according to its website, charts “a course to connect” its clients’ current financial situation and their vision for the future.
Jesse Hurst, a former founding partner of Millennial Group, launched the Cuyahoga Falls firm in 2017. The entrepreneur has been a financial advisor for almost 35 years.
Hurst, according to the nomination, understands his clients’ “financial, personal and family goals on a deep and meaningful level.”
The Impel founder, the nomination said, “has established a reputation for wisdom, integrity and clear communication.”
Hurst is a past president of the Financial Planning Association’s Northeast Ohio chapter. He leads the investment management committee of the Horizon Advisor Network — a group of 55 financial planners in 14 states who collectively manage and consult on more than $2 billion in client assets.
Hurst, according to the nomination, is very active in the community. He’s a Children’s Hope Ambassador for Akron Children’s Hospital, and is a member of the board of directors of the United Way of Summit and Medina counties, as well as the International Soap Box Derby.
Hurst resides in Stow. He and his wife, Rachel, have three children.
