Our History

Our Firm was founded in 1987 by Dean A. Smith.  Already a leading consultant with a major financial institution, Dean decided he was best able to serve his clients by not being committed to one institution.  In 1992, his son Matthew joined the firm upon receiving his degree from Ohio Northern University and fulfilling an active duty military assignment.  

In 1996, John Wurz, a veteran of the industry for over 40 years, saw what he liked in this family business and brought his vast knowledge into the firm.  At that time we changed our name to Smith, Smith & Wurz and went by that name even after John's unexpected death on December 21, 1999.

In 2009 we moved our offices to our present location and expanded our fields of service.  With the change, the move, and the inclusion of several additional representatives, we decided to change our name to Spring Meadows Financial.
