Michael is a financial advisor for WBR Insurance with almost 20 years of experience in the industry. He is responsible for working with WBR Insurance clients, providing them with a holistic financial overview of both assets and liabilities, creating financial portfolios that balance strategic investing and insurance coverage. “You can have all the money in the world but if you’re not adequately insured you could lose it,” he says. Michael throughly enjoys helping individuals and small businesses attain their short and long-term financial goals.
Most recently, he was recognized as a member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT). The MDRT is a professional organization that extends membership to those in the financial industry that reach high performance levels in industry service while maintaining strict ethical standards in providing their clients with financial peace of mind.
In addition to serving WBR Insurance clients, he is actively involved in the community, giving back to domestic charities that aid children and provide hunger relief. He currently serves as the regional director of the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce and previously served as the Financial Counselor for the Virginia Beach Minority Business Council and the director for the Organization of Chinese Americans.
An Illinois native, Michael graduated from Colorado State University in 1997 with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration emphasizing Finance. Following his graduation he worked with Morgan Stanley before launching an investment firm, Private Wealth Resources where he currently serves as president. He and his wife Bertie have been married for 11 years and are new parents to their son, one-year-old, Maxton.
When he’s not spending time with family, he enjoys marathon running and traveling the world. Some would be surprised to learn that he is also a Pitmaster on an award-winning, competitive BBQ team known as the Meatatarians. Michael boasts that the rib category is his team’s specialty.
Michael is delighted to be a part of WBR Insurance team and most admires the company’s personal-touch approach to their clients. As he describes it, WBR Insurance is “somewhat like a big family.” The company challenges each member to strive for excellence in both customer care and community service.
