Professional Advisor Recognition Society Spotlight on Chadwick Watson, Partner, Charter Financial Group

Chad Watson receives Professional Advisor Recognition Society Award at the 2022 Celebration of Philanthropy from Mary Spencer, CFAAC President & CEO

The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County launched its Professional Advisor Recognition Society at the 2022 Celebration of Philanthropy, naming six inductees to its inaugural class—Chadwick (Chad) Watson is one of the first members to receive this honor.

From his earliest professional experience, Chad’s life has been about service to others. His commitment, consistency, and love of community are all part of his passion to help others and encourage good works through charitable giving.

Chad is a partner of Charter Financial Group with nearly 30 years of experience in the financial planning industry. Chad serves on the board of the Clapham Institute and the board of Red, White and Cure, a nonprofit focused on defeating childhood diseases. He is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy, the Navy Supply Corps School, and served honorably until he left the service as a disabled veteran in 1991. Chad is a trustee with the United States Naval Academy Foundation and a member of the United States Naval Academy Presidents Circle and Robert Means Thompson Society. Chad is also Vice Chairman of Shallow Water Blackout Prevention. This cause impacted his family back in the summer of 2020 when his son, Chandler, died for 5 minutes before thankfully being revived as a result of shallow water drowning.
