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.

Bradley Drake was born in northwest Indiana, near Chicago, yet in the middle of rural, small-town, America. The good fortune of spending his childhood years in a “Norman Rockwellian” social environment deeply steeped in agriculture, small business, honesty, integrity, and the value system that the great Midwest is known for left a lasting impression on Bradley and greatly influences the way he approaches and conducts business each day.
Upon graduation from high school, Bradley was awarded a full scholarship to Indiana State University School of Music. Following completion of his studies, he moved to Nashville, TN in 1981. After several years on the music side of the music business, Bradley moved to the business side of the desk. He enjoyed many years of A & R, marketing, and artist strategy positions with major record labels, in addition to Artist Management, and Artist Development. What he enjoyed most about these positions was his ability to help the musicians and recording artists. This skill set of helping people is what made a perfect match with Wesley Financial Group. Wesley Financial Group’s philosophy, combined with the ideals of its senior management is what allows Bradley to tell people, “I have the greatest job in the world, I TRULY get to help people each and every day.”

"Dear Mick: As our contract comes to a close, I would like to personally thank you for all you have done to aide me in getting my contract with Wyndham cancelled due to their misrepresentation. It has been a long road, and I am pleased that my contract with Wyndham is in the process of being cancelled and my original contracts with Wyndham reinstated. You have been professional and caring throughout this process, and that I appreciate. Before I signed on with Wesley Financial Group, I was really at a loss as to what I could do to get myself out of the mess Wyndham had gotten me into and now I am on the road to recovering from a year and a half of financial stress, worry and hopelessness. I wish you all the best and it has been a pleasure working with you. Sincerely, Patricia"
