Q & A with Mike

What attracted you to the investment services field and to Raymond James?
After spending several years in a corporate finance environment, I wanted to work in a field where I could use my planning knowledge and analytical propensity to help people achieve their life goals. I felt Raymond James’ client-centric focus and culture would be a perfect fit to deliver a good client experience.

What personality trait do you have that clients find most valuable?
I take a proactive approach with big picture perspective. I believe the best advisors take the time to fully understand a client’s total financial picture. This perspective along with clear consistent communication can make complex financial concerns easier to identify, understand and resolve.
