Meet the Team

The concept of our team approach was born from years of seeing the battle between a CPA, an insurance specialist and investment advisor. They often have their singular ideals, their individual busy schedules and fear of losing a client kept them from working in unison. Having worked with thousands of agents and advisors for more than a decade, I saw this over and over. Every quality rep realized the value of working in tandem, but they simply did not know someone in their area they felt would allow them to build a team approach. I was fortunate to work with some amazing reps around the nation over the years and even more fortunate that some of them became peers and friends that I trust.

In making my decision to return to working with clients instead of advisors and agents, it was an easy choice to contact the people on our team with this approach. I was very fortunate each of them jumped at the opportunity to do what we do because they personally know the value of having all the brains of each area working in cohesion. This is our team…
