Mike Sharples began his career in the financial industry in 1993, working for a national brokerage firm. Early on he recognized the need for complete, non-biased financial advice, rather than just selling products. Pursuing that higher standard has driven Mike throughout his career. In 1996 Mike passed the board examination to qualify for the financial professional designation of CFP. With the attitude of a problem solver and a strong belief in service excellence, Mike earned a spot among the top five percent of advisers within his former firm. Because of Mike’s success he was asked to train advisers at every level and to run one of the largest offices in the country, managing many hundreds of millions of dollars in assets.
By 2010 Mike realized he wanted to present a wider range of investment choices for clients than were available through the brokerage firm. He decided to form his own firm: MKS Wealth Management. Along with a commitment to finding superior strategies for his clients, Mike developed financial planning tools and a variety of investment platforms that he tailors to fit each client. He continues to pursue the pinnacle of financial education and expertise.
Mike holds both a bachelor's and master's degree from Michigan State University.
