When it comes to investing, there are many complex decisions to make — whether it’s about how much to invest for retirement; how to turn investments into an income stream that supports your lifestyle and that you can’t outlive; to whom you will hand off your business when you retire, or how to distribute assets as part of a legacy. The last thing you want to do is procrastinate out of ignorance, fear or uncertainty.

Having begun his career in the consumer products industry working for Fortune 500 companies in the 1980s and 1990s and being on the wrong side of corporate downsizing and acquisitions, Tom understands how difficult it can be to implement a long-term financial plan while raising a family and building a career in the face of a volatile economic environment.

So in 1998, he decided to change careers and dedicate his professional life to helping people with their financial life. Since then, Tom has been helping folks navigate the complex world of financial decisions. His team diligently seeks to understand what matters most to you and to identify whether your financial actions are in line with what you ultimately want to accomplish.

Tom's passion is to provide clarity and confidence to your financial world, utilizing a comprehensive process that matches your concerns and wishes with customized strategies and solutions specifically designed for you. He wants you to feel good about the plan of action you decide to take. It is his belief that you can expect trustworthiness and excellence from him as your advisor, as well as understanding how your plan is good for you and your family.

Although raised in central Indiana, Tom is an adopted son of St. Louis. He moved there right after graduating from Indiana University in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science degree from its top ranked school of business (aka “Kelley School of Business”). In addition to his academic education, Tom is committed to continuing professional education, having earned two designations, Chartered Life Underwriter® (CLU®) and Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®), which certifies that he is fully trained in all aspects of insurance, investments and financial advising services. As a current member of NAIFA (National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors), as well as a former president and board director, Tom believes in serving my industry that has done so much for his professional development.

The driving force behind Tom's professional passion is his faith in God and love for his family. He has been married since 1985 to Tammy, who also works at Yeaton Financial Group. They have raised three boys, two of whom served in the U.S. Marine Corps and the third is a former Eagle Scout, and are proud grandparents to 6 fantastic kids. One their sons, Ryan, is also an advisor on their team at Yeaton Financial Group. When not in the office, you’ll find Tom and Tammy serving in their church, spending time with grandkids, fishing, making jelly and honey, or planning their next cruise with friends.
