I founded Thrive Retirement Specialists to deliver a more thoughtful and strategic approach to retirement planning. The wealth management industry is full of conflict of interest and inexperienced advisers that often leave people in sub-optimal retirement situations by failing to account for all the risks retirees face and all retirement assets, tools, and tactics that may be available. I believe people deserve better, and the expertise I have been privileged to develop over the past 25 years puts me in a unique position to deliver a better retirement planning experience. I created Thrive Retirement Specialists to offer a single, flat-fee service entitled Thrive Retire that goes far beyond what has traditionally been known as retirement planning. ThriveRetire is an ongoing 8-step retirement planning process and investment management service that seeks to to drive value through four main pillars: 1). Optimized decision making and asset usage, 2). Rules-based (or Dynamic) withdrawal strategies, 3). Tax-efficient withdrawal coordination and asset management, and 4). Low-cost index investing. With every interaction, we seek to inform and serve, so our clients can safely trust their ThriveRetire" plan and process, leaving each client with the confidence and peace of mind to live a vibrant and full life through retirement. I live in Dearborn, Michigan, with my wife Dawn and daughters Emma and Anna.
