Daniel B. Johnson, CLU®, ChFC®, LUTCF, FSS
Chartered Financial Consultant®
I have been in sales and management in the financial services industry since 1975. My primary focus today is to teach strategies that help to maximize each client's financial potential with an emphasis on macro-economic financial planning.
March 1984 – Present
Since 1984 we have focused on building a company committed to providing "Best in Class" service from the companies we represent to the clients we serve. Our objective has been to provide support, information and education that is distinctive and beyond that which is expected. We are not here to sell a particular product, but to pinpoint, out of thousands of alternatives, the best options available. We can help review insurance, investments, and other financial products to work towards our clients's goals.
