Clayton Wealth Partners’ James Walden Graduates from Leadership Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kansas—Clayton Wealth Partners would like to congratulate James Walden, CFA, as a graduate of the Leadership Lawrence Class of 2021.

Walden, a Partner and Chief Investment Officer at the independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), graduated with 34 other classmates in a ceremony on June 24.

The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce offers the Leadership Lawrence program each year. According to the Class of 2021 announcement, Leadership Lawrence is a “professional development program that provides participants first-hand exposure to the inner workings of Lawrence and Douglas County.”

With a mission to build connections and “engage, inspire, and strength our community,” Leadership Lawrence is open to people who live or work in Lawrence or Douglas County.

Walden said the program was gratifying and educational, and he encouraged other residents to take part in Leadership Lawrence when given the opportunity.

“Leadership Lawrence gave me the opportunity to further develop important leadership skills that I can put to use in business, the community and my personal life. I also enjoyed working with a diverse group of other professionals and learning more about Lawrence.”

In addition to Leadership Lawrence, Walden is the board Vice President for Just Food and a member of The Chamber and Jayhawk Breakfast Rotary Club. He also coaches youth soccer through Sporting Kaw Valley.
