Blake A. Sours

Research Associate
“I love creating things that can be broken down and interpreted easily. The more I can do that, the easier I can help the advisors focus on more important tasks.”
Blake joined Auxin Group in January of 2022, where he is eager to learn from the advisors with the goal of becoming one in the future. As a Research Associate, Blake works closely with the advisors to provide up to date research and information on everchanging financial markets and individual investments. “I love creating things that can be broken down and interpreted easily. The more I can do that, the easier I can help the advisors focus on more important tasks.”

Blake earned a finance degree with a minor in economics from the Ohio State University. During his time at Ohio State, he was a co-captain of an Ohio State club tennis travel team, as well as a member of the Undergraduate Finance Association: a student led organization designed to help business students learn how to network and learn what skills are important in the industry.

Prior to joining Auxin Group, Blake began his career as a credit analyst and operations trainer at Upstart Holdings, an online lending platform leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to access the true risk of borrowers and lower the overall cost of credit.

A lifetime Wadsworth resident, you can find Blake exploring new games and music, playing chess, competing in a USTA tennis league, or traveling the world with his family (he has been to 16 different countries!).
