President and CEO
A financial professional since 1995, Wayne Maslyk started his own firm in 2001 intent upon providing the personalized services retirees and pre-retirees need to pursue their financial goals. “My mission,” Wayne says, “is to be the ‘go to’ resource on the North Coast for retirement, tax, and college planning. My services include helping folks learn what mistakes NOT to make and also what SHOULD be done when getting their financial house in order.
In addition to over 20+ years of experience, Wayne brings to clients his status as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) practitioner, which is considered the “Gold Standard” in the financial services industry. Earning that certification required advanced coursework in taxes, retirement planning, estate planning, investments, risk management and other financial issues.
Away from work, Wayne enjoys boating, camping and vacationing with his wife, Laura, and their three sons. Nathan, Jacob, and Jack.
