Congratulations to Alan Clopine, CPA, chosen by San Diego Business Journal as the 2018 CFO of the Year for a Medium Privately Held Company. Winners of the 12th Annual CFO of the Year Awards were announced at The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter on Thursday, March 15, 2018.

As CEO & CFO of Pure Financial Advisors, Alan is responsible for the day-to-day activities of the firm. Alan joined Pure Financial about one year after the company was established.
