Chuck McDowell was born and raised in Tennessee, where he attended Mt. Juliet High School and Middle Tennessee State University. He has spent the last 30 years focusing on serving others and running his own businesses. Chuck started his first company in 1982, and spent time as a stock broker for Pru-Bache during the mid-80s. He later embarked on the insurance industry before becoming a sales representative for a timeshare company. It was at that timeshare company that Chuck realized the industry is not what he thought it was. After discovering the many deceitful tactics the timeshare industry encourages, Chuck left the industry to work on the other side: for consumer rights. He soon served as the CEO for a timeshare advocacy group that is considered to be the pioneer of the timeshare cancellation industry. Just before forming the Wesley Financial Group, LLC, Chuck was the Vice President of operations for the second timeshare advocacy firm that he worked for. It is Chuck’s mission to abide by the motto of John Wesley himself, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” Chuck McDowell is the President and CEO of Wesley Financial Group, LLC. He is a father of two sons, Charles and Cameron, and step daughter Ferrell. Chuck resides in Fairview TN with his wife JoEllen and dog Ollie, cat Bises.
