I have been in the financial services business since I first qualified for my Iowa Insurance License on July 31, 1983. I established DW Insurance Company Inc in 1996 and have been the Branch Manager and doing business as Bettendorf Financial Group since 1998. Over the years I have continued to expand my knowledge base of the industry and have added a couple of professional designations – CLU and ChFC – to my name. While I am proud of my success in the field, I am more proud that I have been able to serve my clients well, and I strive to give them sound financial advice and help guide them toward secure futures. Many of my clients have been with me for more than 20 years and it is the trust that they have in me and the personal connection that we have that brings me so much satisfaction. My wife Sheila and I have been lifelong residents of the Quad Cities. We have two grown sons that are still in the area. Sheila and I enjoy traveling in our motor home with our two Hungarian Sheepdogs – my girls Zoey and Sasha.
I entered the Insurance and Investment Industry in 1998. I joined Bettendorf Financial Group as an Advisor in 2002. I enjoy working with families and businesses helping them gain financial success. I grew up in DeWitt and now reside in Davenport with my wife Penny and our two Olde English Bulldogs, Wrigley and Soldier. I am an avid sports fan (if you couldn’t tell by our dogs’ names). I enjoy cooking and bar-b-que. In the summertime we spend our weekends camping or as we like to say “outdoor living”. I’ve also been known to hack around a golf course a time or two.
I am a Financial Advisor for Bettendorf Financial Group. In addition to serving my client’s Financial Planning and Investment Portfolio Management needs, I am also responsible for developing investment ideas and portfolios for the entire office to consider. I am originally from Massachusetts and enjoy living with my wife and son in Bettendorf. My wife and I are active in the bicycling community as volunteers, advocates, riders and occasional racers.
