CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner
Bart has two decades of experience in the financial services industry.

Since that time, he has developed a thriving practice helping hundreds of families achieve better financial outcomes through planning and investing. His areas of expertise include investment portfolio design and management, risk management, retirement planning, and comprehensive financial planning.
Attention to detail, good listening skills, and great empathy are all part of Bart’s appreciation by his clients. He is supported by a team of administrative specialists whose teamwork and professionalism help him build long-term client relationships. Bart is a proud father to Morgan, Aston, and Reagan; and a lifelong resident of Roanoke where he resides with his wife, Cynthia. In his free time, he enjoys golf, travel, and spending time with his family.
