Kyle Peterson, CWS®
Vice President, Financial Advisor, Portfolio Manager, Co-Branch Manager

Kyle's roots run deep in his hometown of Wenatchee. After beginning his career with a firm in Denver, Kyle was drawn back home to Wenatchee, where he joined D.A. Davidson & Co. as a Financial Advisor. With that experience, he has been in the business of financial services for nearly a decade. Through the resources of D.A. Davidson, Kyle offers a wide range of services that include financial strategies, investment advice and legacy planning. While assisting clients and their families through the process of planning for their futures, he has implemented the values of relationship building and open communication by serving as a trusted financial professional. Kyle is a graduate of Washington State University, where he earned a degree in business administration. In his free time, he enjoys mountain bike racing and snow skiing and has been involved with Vail Colorado Resorts to teach the importance of safety in high-altitude sports. Kyle, his wife, Katherine, and their daughter, Stella, make their home in Leavenworth.


Brett Peterson, CWS®
Financial Advisor

Brett believes strongly in open communication and transparency. He is dedicated to helping individuals and families achieve their financial goals through comprehensive wealth planning, a personalized investment strategy, broad diversification and appropriate risk assessment. A solid financial plan serves as the backbone of honest and supportive financial advice, and the ongoing planning process is truly as valuable as the plan itself.

A native of Wenatchee, Brett spent several years working with a technology firm in the Seattle area before moving back to the Wenatchee Valley. He joined the Riverfront Wealth Management Group in 2019, bringing a fresh approach and innovation to the team. Brett earned his bachelor's degree in business administration, with a focus in finance, from Washington State University. Outside of work, you can find him on the mountain bike trails, ski hill, and at the park with his dog, Cinder. Brett has enjoyed rediscovering Wenatchee and reconnecting with family and friends.
