Ken joined Stratos Wealth Partners with a singular focus – helping clients feel confident about the financial decisions they have made to achieve their goals and dreams. He accomplishes this by investing time getting to know his clients, their families, and businesses, and builds a plan that addresses their questions of “Where do I want to go and how will I get there?” Then, he guides them toward that goal using a process that seeks to provide a reasonable return while protecting their assets in a world where uncertainty is a part of life.

He firmly believes that integrity and honesty are the foundation of his practice and follows the admonition in Proverbs that “a good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.”
