Darren Boyer has competed and achieved his entire life. He accepted an academic scholarship to attend college, and then motivated himself to excel on the football field as well as the classroom. He became a 1st-team all-conference linebacker at Fresno State University, and he came home to Utah with a finance degree and a desire to better the lives of others.
Darren started his career with Prudential Securities in Fresno, CA, while attending Fresno State. Two years later, having graduated from college with a degree in Finance, Darren returned to Utah. He joined Smith Barney in 1992. Since then he has built and managed a very successful investment practice. He has helped individuals just like you with their wealth and plan for their financial future.
Fourteen years and a considerable amount of knowledge later, Darren’s entrepreneurial spirit and the firm belief that a change was needed to keep his clients at the forefront of the ultra-competitive financial arena led to his decision to join LPL Financial. Darren and Jessica Jacques shared the same vision, they opened an office in South Ogden. Committed to ensuring a balanced lifestyle for himself, as well as his clients, Darren is most proud of his family. He currently lives in Riverdale with his best friend and partner Jessica Jacques. They have 5 rambunctious boys that keep them on their toes; Kayne, Talon, Zachary, Cormac and Mason.
Darren reads voluminously. He believes reading keeps his mind active and alert. His home library has well over 6,000 titles. Hunting and fishing are two of his favorite pastimes. The family passion, however, would have to be football. Darren was a 1st-team all-conference linebacker at Fresno State; his father Craig was an all-conference defensive back at Utah State. His younger brother Brant played twelve years in the NFL. His youngest brother Chase also played college football.
Darren has also had the privilege of coaching at his Alma Mater Roy High School over the last few years. It’s his way of giving back to the community and spending quality time with his sons. He takes great pride in these young men.
Darren hopes to one day look back upon his life and know that everyone he has had personal contact with has walked away with a positive experience, even if it is something as simple as a smile or handshake.
There is no greatness where simplicity, goodness and truth are absent. - Leo Tolstoy
