It has been my privilege to work with the many successful individuals, family-owned businesses and privately owned companies over my nearly 40 years as an advisor to affluent families. Prior to joining The Madison Group, I had been the Founder and President of the M.J. Richards Company which was also a Denver-based financial services organization serving the same clientele. Twenty-one years ago, the M.J. Richards Company merged with The Madison Group with The Madison Group as the surviving entity. The Madison Group recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. An especially enjoyable part of my career has been the requests to speak to industry groups, both within the financial services industry and our clients’ industry organizations. Equally enjoyable has been my work with The Economic Club of Colorado as both a Board Member and a past Chairman, as well as my work with Starlight Children’s Foundation of Colorado in the founding of the Colorado chapter.

I graduated from Oneonta State University of New York in 1977. In addition, I have acquired the professional designations of Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and Accredited Estate Planner (AEP). I also have served as the past Chair of the AALU Wealth Transfer Committee and am currently a member of AFHE (Attorneys for Family Held Enterprises) and FFI (Family Firm Institute). Our securities work is done as a registered representative of M Holdings Securities, Inc. It has been my great pleasure to serve alongside some of the most talented professionals in providing life changing advice to our clients for the benefit of their families.

I particularly enjoy my time with my family. I have 3 children who keep me young. While possessing no particular talent, I have always been an avid sports participant. I have competed in triathlons and as a cyclist and marathoner. Now I enjoy the gravity-free environment of swimming and competing as an open water swimmer. My favorite event is the 10k open water swim. During the winter, I enjoy skiing in Colorado with my younger children, Soleil and Jasper, who have no choice but to come with me. My daughter, Lily, is successfully directing and starring in a web based episodic TV Series. My wife, Petra, is in charge of our family’s cultural exposure. Petra is also a widely recognized and highly acclaimed interior designer. As a German citizen, she has introduced our children to life as bilingual, bicultural dual citizenship children.
