Tom Strauchon, CFP®

Managing Director, Private Client Services

As a financial planner, I am proud to help successful businesses develop and implement ownership and management succession plans, and to assist individuals with their wealth transfer and estate planning needs. Working with families and businesses to pass on their personal wealth to their children and grandchildren is a privilege I have had for the past 30 years. My background also has provided me, and therefore my clients, with experience in sophisticated life insurance products and their application in planning techniques. But the most satisfying part of what I do comes when a client says “thank you.” It means I helped make a meaningful difference in their, and their family’s, life.
