Tony has been in the Investment industry since 2001, joining the MidWestOne Investment team in 2006 to serve the North Region of Iowa. Tony holds Series 63, 7, and 65 securities registrations through LPL Financial, as well as Life Insurance licenses in states across the Midwest, Florida, and California.
However, his first career path was in Agronomy. With a BS in Agronomy from Iowa State, he worked at several locations around Iowa, then moved into Agronomy management at a co-op in central Iowa for 13 years. Ready for a change, and having a personal interest in investing, he switched into the investment business and hit the ground running, literally going door to door, slowly building his client base.
Working with his clients and getting to know them personally is one of the most satisfying aspects of his position with MidWestOne Investments. Knowing his clients allows Tony to help them determine financial goals and consider available options. He challenges himself to help his clients make their money work for them, rather than having to work for their money. He does this by educating clients on the ups and downs of the many types of investment products available to help make an informed decision as to which product best fits their needs. Tony considers his responsibility to maintain integrity and honesty in helping clients make their financial decisions.
In Tony’s time outside the office, he enjoys spending time in the wilderness, canoeing and ice fishing. Camping with his wife, Tina, and their two children has been a major family activity over the years and still is, now that his children are grown and he can camp and fish with his 5 grandchildren, too. He and Tina enjoy traveling to Des Moines and the Twin Cities to visit the “kids” and spoil the grandchildren, and occasionally, they venture further from home to see the world.
