Kissinger & Kirkman Investment Centre, LLC

Thursday, May 24, 2012

In 2006 the doors to Kissinger & Kirkman Investment Centre, LLC opened to our clients and friends. Sharon Kissinger, AAMS, Financial Consultant and Erick Kirkman, AAMS, CFP, ® Financial Consultant had spent many years dreaming and planning of opening their own investment firm and in November of 2006 that dream and all their plans came to fruition.

Kissinger and Kirkman brought a combined 35 years experience with them so they were well prepared to continue serving their clients just as they had before.

Along with Sharon and Erick, their entire staff came with them to the new firm. David Kissinger, performs the role of Director of First Impressions, Amy Moore and Kim Joyner serve as Directors of Operation and Rose Kennedy served as Coordinator of Internal Operations. Since the opening of the business, Rose has retired and Michelle Wooldridge has joined as Director of Marketing and Office Manager.

"Our firm is a family-owned and operated business," Kissinger said. "Erick is our son-in-law, David is my husband, and Michelle is our daughter. Amy and Kim aren't "blood" family but we certainly claim them."

Kirkman explained, "as Independent Advisors, we have more flexibility to run our business with our clients as our main focus. There are no corporate demands to sell only certain investments so we always have our clients' needs and interests at the forefront of everything we do. We certainly have an excellent broker dealer with whom we work, LPL Financial, the largest independent broker/dealer in the country as reported by Financial Planning magazine, June 1996-2011, based on total revenue. They supply us with excellent technology, research, and compliance."

After Kissinger's nearly 32 years in the industry and Erick's 14 years Kissinger and Kirkman are more enthusiastic now than ever. "We have exciting plans for the future of Kissinger & Kirkman Investment Centre," said Kissinger. "We are planning to construct a new campus here in Poplar Bluff over the next several years. Amy has just completed her B.S. in accounting and will sit for the CPA in the near future. Our other plans are on paper but not on a time-line yet but be sure to keep up with us via our website;!"
