Wealth Partner and CEO
Peter develops long-lasting relationships with his clients and their families, becoming a trusted partner in decisions wherever life and wealth intersect.
He draws from his 30 years of experience and advanced skill set in estate and tax planning to simplify complex financial ecosystems. He works closely with clients to mitigate dangers and capture opportunities.
Peter asks the right questions to create a plan that ensures clients continue to follow their TruNorth when making important decisions. His clients trust the advice they receive because Peter and his team are fiduciaries. They do not earn commissions and will never accept commissions.
Peter established TruNorth, an independent advisory firm, in 2005. He merged his firm with BGM to form BGM TruNorth Wealth Partners in 2013. Today, he serves as CEO of TruNorth Wealth Partners with offices in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Sacramento, California.
Peter began his financial career at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. During his 16 years there, he served as Investment Advisory Representative for Network Planning Advisors and as Trust Consultant for Northwestern Mutual Trust Company. He served in a branch management function overseeing 80 representatives.
Peter is passionate about training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, teaching self-defense classes, flying airplanes cross country (as an instrument rated pilot), exercise, and travel. He’s very active in his church and enjoys spending time with his wife, Beth, and his three adult daughters.
