Our People

Chris Casey, President/Owner

I began my professional journey after obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I then began my career at KPMG, specializing in audit, tax, and advisory services. After progressing to roles as a senior tax accountant at Best Buy and later as a senior tax consultant, I transitioned to the financial services industry in 2006.

As a financial advisor, I provide my clients with a collaborative approach, where we attentively listen to their current and future financial aspirations. I strive to understand their unique needs and aspirations, crafting tailored solutions to help them achieve their goals and establish a sturdy financial foundation.

Serving clients in Minneapolis and the surrounding southern suburbs, I am committed to providing comprehensive financial guidance and support to individuals and families in our community.

Outside of work, I cherish spending time with my family and friends, often attending my sons' sporting events and engaging in recreational activities like boating. Additionally, I maintain a healthy lifestyle by dedicating time to the gym and indulging in my passion for music through concerts and other cultural events.
