I have been in the financial services business since 1983 when I sold my first life insurance policy. Working in the industry for over 40 years I have developed a passion for enhancing the financial health of my clients. In addition, I have developed financial expertise through years of experience and receiving the professional designations – CLU® and ChFC® from the American College of Financial Services.
In 1998, I started Bettendorf Financial Group as an independent firm where I can put quality of service as one of our top priorities. I am proud that I have been able to serve my clients well and many of my clients have been with me for more than 30 years. As a business owner and Registered Principal for my firm, I receive great satisfaction from the trust and personal connection that I receive from our clients.
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, spending time in our second home in Colorado and as lifelong dog lovers we have dogs that keep us busy.
