Scott Sams, morning show host at KRLD NewsRadio 1080 and former news anchor at CBS 11 and WFAA-TV Channel 8, interviewed both Tyson King, founder and CEO of Inspire Financial Group, and his brother Korbin King, COO, to gain insight into the people, practices and core beliefs that make Inspire Financial Group a True Blue Business.

In addition, Inspire Financial Group will be profiled in print in the True Blue Business special supplement to The Wall Street Journal and at blueribbonnews.com.
Companies identified as True Blue Businesses deliver quality goods and services while demonstrating a strong commitment to their customers, employees, and the community. They act with honesty and integrity, are “true blue” and loyal to the people they serve, and often go the extra mile. In short, they are the companies that Dallas-Fort Worth can count on.
True Blue Businesses are approved based on information obtained through comprehensive interviews and research. The evaluation process involves input from principles, officers, management, employees, and customers to determine a company’s ability to consistently demonstrate the following:
- honesty and integrity in day-to-day dealings with customers, in the management of employees, in interactions with the community;
- responsiveness in resolving customer complaints, handling employee matters, and adapting to changing market conditions;
- and goodwill toward customers, employees, and the community.
In a letter to Inspire Financial Group’s employees, Korbin explained that the company was invited to apply for the True Blue recognition program after being recognized in the 2011 Five Star Wealth Manager program published in Texas Monthly in August 2011.
“Tyson and I responded to a very lengthy written questionnaire covering topics on how IFG handles customer relations, employee relations, and community relations,” he wrote. He added that the company’s officers, managers, agents and clients were interviewed as part of the application process. “We are very proud of this recognition as a True Blue Business,” Korbin said.
Inspire Financial Group currently has 15 independent agents and 11 support staff members, serving 3,585 clients throughout Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond – mostly public school employees. Their mission is to change the world by guiding people towards financial freedom and helping them realize their dreams.
