Partner, Chief Investment Officer (CIO)
Blair Tushaus brought his competitive spirit and disciplined approach to Tushaus Wealth Management in 2015, when he joined the firm and obtained his Arizona insurance license. He became Series 65 securities licensed as an Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) and fiduciary in 2019.
He and the whole team at TWM customizes each plan after listening to clients’ goals and life objectives and considering their needs. “Nothing we do at our firm is cookie-cutter. We all love client relations and perform a variety of duties.” Blair says.
Participating in sports honed Blair’s teamwork skills from a young age. A former collegiate football player and offensive lineman at Brigham Young University from 2010-2012, he transferred and finished his degree in business and history interdisciplinary studies at Arizona State University. He then attended the University of Arizona, earning a master’s degree in international security, where he also played on the 2014 Fiesta Bowl football team. During this time, Blair earned membership to the NFF (National Football Foundation) Hampshire Honor Society.
Before joining Tushaus Wealth Management, Blair spent time as a graduate assistant and coach for the University of Nebraska football team. He also worked in the medical field, and pursued pre-med. During this time, he met his lab partner and future wife, Desirae.
Blair is an active and engaged member of the community, including involvement with his church, Illuminate Community Church, and its ministries; work with Scottsdale’s Notre Dame Preparatory High School, where he was co-chair of the Alumni Association and volunteers as a football coach; outreach programs in the Sunnyslope area; and assistance with the Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation’s Arizona Chapter and Folds of Honor in support of fallen or disabled U.S. military members. He enjoys teaching and he developed and leads a series of financial education courses for single women called “Financial Peace,” where he covers a different topic each week.
Blair currently resides in Scottsdale where he lives with his wife Desirae and looks forward to growing his family further.
