In October 2014, Brent Ditto established Ditto Wealth Management to serve residents of the heartland of Kentucky. Born and raised in Elizabethtown, Brent Ditto is a multi-generational Kentuckian. The earliest known census data shows the Ditto family in Hardin County in 1810. The Ditto blood line can also be traced back to Daniel Boone, as seen in the family tree picture. During World War II, the Ditto family farm in West Point, KY was sold to expand the tank range at Fort Knox. From that point, the family roots moved to Boston, KY. Brent enjoyed growing up in Elizabethtown. He was the 1992 recipient of the Sony Chaput award from the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission. He graduated in 1998 from Central Hardin High School, playing four years of baseball and football. After high school, Brent attended Western Kentucky University, and graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Economics. While there, he was President of the Economics Club, a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity serving at Treasurer, and was also a two term Spirit Master for the University.
In 2009, Brent became President of the WKU Heartland Alumni Chapter. Then in 2011, he was honored with the Young Alumnus of the Year award from the University.

While working on his MBA, Brent began his career at Aegon Financial Partners in downtown Louisville. From there, he joined Morgan Stanley in Louisville as a financial advisor. With the idea of eventually moving back home to Elizabethtown, Brent joined Hilliard Lyons in Louisville as an advisor trainer, utilizing the knowledge he obtained from Morgan Stanley. After two years, there was an opening for a financial advisor in the Elizabethtown branch of Hilliard Lyons, so Brent moved back home to serve the community he loves. In 2008, Brent obtained the Certified Financial Planner designation, (CFP). Brent is married to his wife, Kristi, also of Elizabethtown, and they reside in town with their daughters, Kate and Avery.
