Al Hyde, a native of Nashville, NC, joined TCFN in February 2015. Al’s family is deeply rooted in Eastern North Carolina; having owned and operated Nashville Furniture Company for 70 years. Al grew up in Nash County and matriculated through the public school system. Following graduation from Northern Nash Senior High, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he obtained his degree in History and a minor in vocal performance. He worked with his father in the family business until late 2012. At that time, Al decided to enter the financial services industry and he was recruited by John Parham, Executive Vice President, of AXA Advisors in 2013. He finished his first year with AXA among the top of “new recruits” and joined Lincoln Financial in 2015. John Parham, a 26 year veteran in the industry, has been instrumental in mentoring Al and the two of them continue to work together today. “I enjoy helping people plan for their future and I am especially dedicated to Long Term Care” said Hyde.
Al and his wife of eighteen years Barbara live in historic downtown Nashville. In his spare time, he serves on the Board of Directors of Cherry Hill Plantation outside historic Warrenton NC, Organist and Director of Music for Pinetops Presbyterian Church, sings with the North Carolina Master Chorale, giving public concerts in eastern NC, working out at the YMCA, and yard work.
