Landon joined Evans Financial Group in 2016 with the unique advantage of being mentored by both his father and grandfather. Landon takes pride in continuing the family’s legacy of helping to enrich the financial lives of others. His background is in asset protection, and as Managing Partner he oversees the operation and growth of the company as a whole.


Landon takes a goal focused approach to designing strategies for his clients and believes that being a good listener and educator is paramount to the planning process. He takes the time to thoroughly translate concepts and create clarity in clients’ financial strategies, and engages in meaningful conversations that help remove confusion from the wealth building journey. Landon believes that though past trends and performance provide perspective, they are only a small part of planning for the future. From this perspective he performs a micro-analysis of viable solutions to develop a macro-plan.  Treating clients like family is what inspires him most in business, and he is steadfast in fostering lifelong, meaningful relationships.


Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, he took over as the AVMA Trust’s hand-selected representative to Texas A&M in 2019, and then later received the same privilege and responsibility for Texas Tech University in 2021. 


A graduate of Texas A&M University, Landon earned a bachelor’s degree in history in 2018. During college he coached high school football (named offensive coordinator by age 21) while also playing in a country band that at its height played over 100 shows a year. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and hosting dinner events, dog training, wrist watches, live music, cards, and dominoes. Landon is the proud companion to the Labrador Rollie and engaged to be married to his best friend, Caitlynn, in 2024.
