Whether he’s consulting to business owners and executives or leading the retirement plan services team, Mike McMorris applies creative energy and an entrepreneurial spirit. Mike is also a valued member of the Leadership Team. Drawing from his deep background with qualified retirement plans, Mike loves to provide little-known solutions to business leaders as well as their employees. “I sleep well,” he says, “when I know I have provided unique financial strategies to solve complex financial planning needs.”

Before joining the firm, Mike took over or established more than 100 retirement plans every year while serving as a consultant and sales manager for Benetech, Inc., a national pension administration and actuarial services firm. Prior to this, Mike worked for Hewitt, Merrill Lynch, and Milliman. Trained as a Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA), Qualified Pension Administrator (QPA), and Qualified 401(k) Administrator (QKA), Mike has a proven track record with 20 years of experience in retirement plan services.

Mike has an affinity for small businesses and has worked with hundreds of Midwestern small businesses, their employees and advisors, as well as billion dollar pension plans. He earned a BA in business administration from Illinois Wesleyan University.

Nothing brings greater joy to Mike than his three daughters. When he isn’t working, he enjoys the outdoors, coaching youth sports teams, and joining his daughters in the Indian Princesses Chickasaw Nation. Mike loves hunting, skiing, scuba diving, and writing. “When I was a kid, I fancied being like John Grisham, writing novels destined for the silver screen. I suppose I haven’t given up that dream.”
