Mike is one of the newest partners to the Edge Advisors team. Working in the Fox Valley for several competitors, Mike had heard many great things about Edge and understood that this was the type of company that he envisioned himself becoming a part of. His partnership with Edge grew out of a need to find a more personal balance between client service and client relationship. Mike instantly recognized the value that he could add to Edge Advisors and the opportunity Edge could provide him to grow an intimate client base. Mike relishes the challenge set forth by Edge to be more than just a tax voice to his clients and grow with them as they grow. He brings an excellent set of skills to the table to do just that.
Mike was born and raised in Kaukauna, WI and attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where he graduated with degrees in Accounting and Finance. After graduation, Mike returned to the Fox Valley where he joined Schenck, SC which later merged into Clifton Larsen Allen. In 2016 Mike earned his CPA and advanced through the ranks to the role as Senior.
In his numerous years of experience working with Schenck and CLA, he worked primarily on the tax services team implementing tax strategies for his business and individual clients. Mike provided tax planning and preparation for many small to large businesses and high net worth individuals. He was also heavily involved in staff recruitment as well as being a go-to person for staff. Mike has always been someone who values his relationships and naturally puts himself in his client’s shoes to better understand their needs and desires. Mike’s skillset and strong desire to help clients grow is what drives him to be a successful advisor here at Edge. His simple goal is to have a relational partnership with his clients to help them financially and personally.
Mike’s passion outside of the office starts with his family. His wife Danielle and he have a black lab named Hank that everyone says they treat as a real human child. When they’re not throwing the frisbee for Hank, they can be found playing any number of sports including golf, volleyball, kickball and softball to name a few. Mike has a family cabin near Crivitz, WI where he enjoys boating, fishing and relaxation.
