YOUR CAMBIUM TEAM

Dedicated to Serving Your Needs

J. Kenyon Lang

CEO, President, Managing Partner

Kenyon believes that everyone deserves to have confidence in their financial lives and fulfills his belief by deploying a systematic process that allows people to understand their personal vision and have a clear financial path to turn that vision into a reality.

A large part of his role is understanding how the markets, government regulations, taxes, and other external items impact our ability to build, utilize and pass wealth to loved ones in the most efficient manner.

Kenyon has a degree in Economics and Sociology from Boston College. On graduating, he immediately entered the financial services business, where he has faithfully served his clients for over 25 years.

‘Seeing someone set a plan in place and enact that plan is immensely gratifying. I have clients that I can recall when their children were born, and they had no idea how they would fund college. Those children now have college degrees, jobs that are gratifying and they are making a difference. The parents could not be prouder, and I got to be a part of that’.
