Taylor Payne Blue Background

T. Taylor Payne, CFP®, CPA, PFS

Vice President, Head Of Office, Evansville

Taylor Payne, Evansville, assists clients by advising them in all facets of financial and estate planning at the Evansville office of Goldman Sachs Personal Financial Management, within the Consumer and Wealth Management Division of Goldman Sachs.

Taylor’s strong background in finance and his even stronger desire to help others came to a crossroads in 1989 when he started his own business Payne Wealth Partners which joined what is now known as Goldman Sachs Personal Financial Management. He previously worked at the CPA firm Deloitte and Touche in St. Louis and later as Vice President of Finance at Black Beauty Coal prior to starting his own business.

A Columbia, Mo. native, Taylor graduated from the University of Missouri in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, with a major in Accounting. After graduating, Taylor received his Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification, followed by his Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation. He has also earned the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) designation.

Taylor and wife Jenny are the parents of two daughters, Sarah and Laura, and three sons, Andrew, Ethan and Alex. In addition to spending time with his family, Taylor enjoys golf, hiking and reading. Taylor’s desire to help others isn’t limited to his client base — he has been involved in many organizations in the Evansville community.
