Kevin started Family Wealth Group in 2007 to support those retired or planning to retire in repositioning their retirement assets for more dependable outcomes, as well as achieving their immediate and ultimate financial goals with greater certainty.
His passionate commitment to a holistic approach to financial services, including legacy (wills and trusts), tax (repositioning assets), risk (age appropriate), income (stable and predictable), and investment (actively managed) planning sets FWG apart as a highly sought-after firm.
He resides in Lexington with his wife, Brenda. Together they have four sons, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
