If you’re already one of our clients, you may already know Nikki Krishnan and you know what a joy she is to work with! Nikki serves as the Executive Assistant to Rick Laymon, helping manage his professional calendar, coordinating client meetings and follow-ups, email management and other small projects. Nikki’s diligence and kind spirit bless our whole team.
Nikki, her husband Manoj, and their seven-year-old son Arjun, live in Charlotte, NC. Nikki and Manoj hail from Kerala in southwest India, a state famed as “God’s own country” and renowned for its beautiful coast, mountains, and forests. She earned her MBA from D.J. Academy for Managerial Excellence in Coimbatore in 2009 before moving to the United States. Her son Arjun was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Nikki’s first job was as a bookkeeper for a small IT company in India. Since then, she has acquired diverse skills and experience in administration and accounting in the IT, services, and nonprofit sectors – skills and experience she brings to her role at Beacon Wealth Consultants. Nikki wasn’t aware of faith-based investing before she joined Beacon Wealth Consultants but is thrilled and excited about this approach. What she enjoys most about working with us is our family-oriented team saying, “Beacon Wealth Consultants is a great team to work with. A group of committed, honest, straightforward and spiritual people coming together to serve the clients and manage their investments in the most efficient and effective way.” We couldn’t agree more Nikki!
In her free time, Nikki enjoys being in nature, spending time with her son, meditation, cooking, and meeting people.
Thank you for being such a blessing to our team Nikki!
