George's Bio


George “Lisle” Cheatham was raised in South Central Kentucky, where life has given him the opportunity to serve his Commonwealth, his community and his clients in a number of capacities through the years. It's those same-small town Kentucky values and commitment to service that are a cornerstone of George's own business for over 30 years.   

After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 1989 with degrees in both economics and political science, George went to work with a Wall Street based investment firm, First Investors Corporation, where he quickly rose to District Manager.  In 1991 he started his own independent financial services company, American Financial Consultants, Inc., the company he leads today.  

Through honest, informed advice and personalized attention, George works to help improve his client's lives.  George is a Certified Financial Fiduciary® and has received his certification in the Bucket Plan® Best Interest Planning Process.  George has also been a contributor to the widely reported Advisor Confidence Index published by and Rydex Investments.

George carries this same sense of service into other aspects of his life.  He has served on several Boards and Commissions both across Kentucky and in his local area - Leadership Kentucky, Inc., the Lake Cumberland Area Development District, the Kentucky League of Cities and the State of Kentucky Local Distribution Fund Oversight Committee just to name a few.  Through his strong support for education he has also served on the Board of Directors and as chairman of the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.  

George was honored to also have served as Mayor of his hometown of Greensburg for 16 years - four consecutive terms. 

Apart from being a proud true-blue Kentucky Wildcat fan, George's greatest pride is one daughter, Eva M. Cheatham, JD, - a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law and currently a clerk for the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, DC.
