About Us

Tumwater is a river canyon, well known for its Class 5 Rapids, near Leavenworth, WA where Ben Warren grew up.

It’s the type of journey that is dangerous to take on alone, but an experienced guide can take you through the dangers to places most people only dream of seeing.

“We can’t think of a better metaphor for long term investing.”

Tumwater has been a great resource for financial planning for my future and eventually my retirement. I’ve worked with Ben to find the right balance of investments that suit my long-term saving goals. I also have appreciated Ben’s help with other savings goals, whether it’s regarding an emergency savings fund, or saving for a specific purchase. He is always willing to answer my questions and explain the rationale behind investment moves. He also reviewed my 401(k) plan which was very helpful!

Tumwater has helped my family think about our financial future– but in a uniquely holistic way.
I really value being able to ask for Ben’s advice on any financial topic, be it immediately related to our investment planning or not.
Ben sees and understands how the big picture impacts the tactical decisions he helps you make.

Tumwater has given me a place to have my money managed, to allow the money to work for us, thereby increasing in value every day. Tumwater invests the money into funds that grow, watches those funds to stay [diversified]. You hire a Financial Advisor to focus on increasing the value of your saved money. This allows you to focus on your own profession to succeed. The money invested then grows and is there for life’s big bills, college for youngsters, retirement, etc.

I find the entire staff consistently responsive. This is significant for me. Once I recognize I need information, it is helpful to receive that information quickly.

My first contact with Ben occurred when he was the Financial Advisor for my former employer… The first one-on-one meeting we held to discuss my financial future
was a total wakeup call (Yes, there were tears). He laid out an honest appraisal of my current financial situation and what I needed to do differently to move positively
toward a reasonably comfortable retirement. I took his sound advice to heart. Last year, I was unexpectedly laid off and that led to my decision to retire at the age of 70. I reached out to Ben and he immediately set up a time to talk about the best options for my 401K. A plan to roll the funds into an IRA was set in place and implemented by Ben and his co worker, Jackson. I am confident that Ben has my best interest at heart.
Communication is never an issue—I always know I will receive honest, appropriate guidance.

Ben Warren
Founder of Tumwater Wealth Management
"Families that make investment decisions based on what is best for the next generation, make better investment decisions."

Ben Warren, CFA Founder

I grew up in Leavenworth, Washington.  For college, I moved to the Boise area to attend Northwest Nazarene University where I played catcher and was team captain for the University’s baseball team. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 2002.

I began working as a financial advisor in 2004 and earned the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation in 2011. I’m currently a member of both the CFA Institute and the CFA Society of Idaho and was honored in 2014 by the Idaho Business Review as one of the Accomplished 40 Under 40 in 2014.

I’m one of the lucky people that genuinely loves what they get to do for a living. Guiding good people through critical decisions in their financial lives is the most amazing privilege.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Beyond work, my life is about my incredible wife and four(!) beautiful daughters, traveling to experience the amazing world we live in, and reading both for fun and to constantly improve.

Chelayne Molck,
Director of Operations

As Ben Warren’s Executive Assistant, I have the honor of working closely with Ben and ensuring our clients achieve their goals.

I have worked in the Financial industry since 2010. I graduated from Boise State University with two degree’s, Accounting and Human Resource Management. These two degrees aren’t often associated with one another, but I have always enjoyed numbers and working closely with people. At Tumwater, I am able to do both and feel very lucky to use my strengths to help others.

In my free time I enjoy golfing, hiking, and traveling with my husband and two children.

Aaron Molck,  Processor

I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and have two decades of experience in the financial industry. I have worked for two of the largest banks in America, in numerous roles and that gives me a well-rounded understanding of clients needs and how to assist, ensuring their goals are realized.

My family has been the greatest gift in life and I get the pleasure of working with my wife at Tumwater.  My son and daughter keep me busy at home with sports, barbies and homework.  If I am not at work or hanging out with the family, you can find me on a golf course or swimming in a pool.

Nancy Warren, Secretary

I have had the privilege of knowing Ben all his life – I’m his Mom.

I grew up on a farm in northern Idaho and enjoyed working with my Dad driving truck throughout the harvest seasons.  When it came time to go to college, I chose Northwest Nazarene University  in Nampa.  I graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 1972.  I married a pastor in 1975 and we lived in various places throughout the Northwest.  I also worked at a variety of office jobs during that time.

In 2021 Ben came and invited me to join his staff working as the Office Manager.  I’m enjoying the opportunity of watching him as he assists his clients in the management of their wealth toward a more secure future.

Bryan Matson, Advisor

I joined Tumwater Wealth Management as a financial advisor in January 2024 after my career with Charles Schwab. Although I majored in Political Science & Government at California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, I developed a passion for finance after college as I began reading Warren Buffett and managing my own finances.

In my spare time, I lift weights, run full and half-marathons, play chess, volunteer at my local parish, and go hunting and fishing throughout Idaho.
