Meet The Interns

Few things get us more excited at Capital Financial Group than a new class of interns for the summer. We wanted to take a moment to introduce our interns that have been working hard in our Brentwood office so far this summer. They are from universities all around the South, and we love having them around for their summer break! They bring us fresh perspectives, new ideas and joy. Our interns assist in a variety of tasks and departments and are able to show their strengths and develop their skills over the summer or year that they are part of our team.
