In 2004, I founded Bollin Wealth Management to provide clients with best-in-class financial planning solutions with a fiduciary focus. I accomplished this by marrying the best practices of financial planning with the problem-solving methodology I learned in my career as an engineer. In 2008, I earned the Certified Financial Planner™ designation to augment our firm’s financial planning competencies.
A native of Toledo, I graduated from St. John’s Jesuit High School where I was recognized as a National Merit Commended Scholar. I attended the University of Detroit on an academic scholarship and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. After graduation I embarked on a career in Information Technology, working for several industry titans including Electronic Data Systems, General Motors, Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Desiring to further my education, I earned my Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Michigan with specializations in Finance and Corporate Strategy.
After earning my MBA I worked with wealth management consultants in the financial services industry. I was dismayed by what I learned in those two years. I discovered that the biggest concern for the banks, insurance and brokerage companies I consulted with was not doing what was best for their clients, but instead focusing on how to capture a bigger share of their clients’ wallets. After this experience, I resolved to provide clients with a better financial planning experience.
