Austin Albert loves this community, and the small town feel of this Lewiston Auburn. He says, “I like the grittiness, ambition and diversity of the community and its people.”
A Lewiston native, he is a Financial Advisor at his firm, Twin City Financial Group. In his job, he helps individuals and businesses make informed financial decisions and build sound investment strategies through investment management, client education and advice. Austin began his career in 2006 with Edward Jones Investments. With his partner, he founded Twin City Financial Group in 2012. His profession provides perspective on the area’s challenges, including attracting and retaining quality employers. Austin notes, “We need more higher paying jobs in order to attract and/or retain younger workers. That also ties in to the image of LA. There are a lot of people doing great work to improve the image of this terrific community. We need to embrace the diversity of this community and see it as on opportunity.”
Deeply involved in the LA community, Austin serves or has served on several community boards including: the LA Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Franco Center, the Lewiston Education Fund, the Auburn Business Association, Central Maine Medical Center, Central Maine Healthcare, Community Credit Union and various committees for each.
Austin loves to cycle, but young children keep him closer to home spending time with his family. They all enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, golfing and boating and local favorites, Fishbones, El Pochos and Davincis.
