    Rick began working in the financial services industry in 1980 and joined UBS in 2000.  With the instincts and skills honed by his nearly 40 years as a financial advisor, he provides holistic wealth management solutions for high net worth individuals and their families.

    As one of the very few UBS advisors to earn the prestigious Wealth Advisor designation, Rick serves multiple generations within families with comprehensive financial and long-term planning.  He also holds the Certified Private Wealth Advisor (CPWA®) designation, an advanced professional certification for advisors who work with high net worth clients on wealth accumulation, preservation and distribution.  Planning dozens of years in advance for a client's retirement or the college education of their children or grandchildren and seeing those plans come to fruition is his greatest reward as a financial advisor.

    As a partner of Gateway Family Wealth, Rick deals with all aspects of client wealth management, but is specifically involved in the investment strategy, individual stock portfolios and fixed income strategy.  Along with assisting private clients, Rick is actively engaged in serving the unique needs of the team's institutional, corporate, foundation and endowment fund clients.

    Rick lives in St. Louis with his wife and is passionate about helping disadvantaged children within his community.  He has served as a board member of the Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital and as a board member and president of the Logos School, an alternative school for children with major learning impediments.  He is a former president and current board member of The Little Bit Foundation, a public charity providing basic services to disadvantaged children.  In his spare time, Rick enjoys golfing and cycling.

        Over the years, Mike has developed a specialty in addressing the unique planning needs of business owners and entrepreneurs.  He helps these clients confidently conquer challenges they face with strategic planning at every stage, whether they are just starting, growing, or planning to exit their business.   A testament to his commitment, Mike has earned the Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA®) designation and has helped multiple clients juggle the personal, business and market-related factors involved to complete successful sales to family members, private equity, ESOPs, and other buyers.  Mike also holds the prestigious Chartered Retirement Plan Specialist (CRPS®) designation and has spent considerable time helping companies design valuable retirement plans and executive compensation benefits while navigating an increasingly complex world of regulation and litigation and he has served as a keynote speaker and featured author on the topics. 

        Mike is one of the few advisors to earn the esteemed UBS Wealth Advisor designation.  Only a small number of exceptional advisors recognized for their deep commitment to multi-generational wealth management are selected by the firm’s leadership to participate in this rigorous program.

        Mike and his wife are St. Louis natives who met in college and are raising their family together in Chesterfield,  MO.

          Sean believes that choosing a wealth manager is one of the most important decisions a family can make—yet proper financial advice and planning can be difficult to find. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, he believes in adding significant value to his clients’ lives, going beyond investments to help them define and pursue their financial goals. Based on trust, his practice is customized to help support his clients’ current lifestyle, retirement income needs and legacy ambitions in a tax-efficient way.

          Sean started his career in financial services in 2014 and joined UBS and Gateway Family Wealth in January 2019. His experience as a former Division 1 student athlete and professional hockey player allows him to help his professional athlete clients navigate the unique challenges they face throughout their career and beyond. In addition, the work ethic, passion, discipline and teamwork that became second nature to him during his playing days are the same attributes he employs with all his clients as a wealth manager and CFP® practitioner.

          Since retiring from the professional side of ice hockey in 2014, Sean is very involved with youth hockey in St. Louis. He currently coaches and serves on the board of the St. Louis AAA Blues. His other main interests include golf, tennis and travel. Sean lives in Wildwood, MO, with his wife, Chelsea, and their two young children.
