Warren Barnett is the founder, President, and Portfolio Manager for Barnett & Company. His early beginnings in Washington, D.C. were with the investment banking firm of Kidder, Peabody & Company, and the investment counseling firm of Davidge & Company. He returned to Chattanooga to accept a position in the trust department of a local bank. In 1983 he established Barnett & Company when he perceived the need locally for the same type of investment counseling that he had experienced in D.C. Warren’s generous heart for the community is appreciated by many local non-profits, thus bestowing the honor of the 2019 Ruth Holmberg Leadership Award. In 2015, the Professionals of Southeastern Tennessee named Warren as the Outstanding Philanthropist of the Year. In addition to serving on several charitable and professional boards, he continues to build his legacy of community engagement, fostering relationships with non-profits. Warren is a CFA® charterholder since 1986. He is a Chattanooga native and graduated from The McCallie School. Warren received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and a Master of Business Administration degree in Finance from the Owen School of Management at Vanderbilt University.
