Meet With Derek Take Financial Assessment

Derek joined the Plancorp team in 2018 when he and his wife moved to St. Louis from Denver to raise children closer to family. 


As a Senior Wealth Manager, Derek helps our clients with high income and complex needs navigate through all stages of life. He has also developed specializations in financial planning for college-bound families and employees with equity-based and deferred compensation plans. 


Derek is a lifelong learner with an appetite for books that far exceeds the time he has to actually read them. His wife will tell you he cares way too much about his lawn and his homemade lattes. He is also an avid fan of Nebraska football, craft beer, and all things local.
