Mike Ruff, CFP®

Financial Consultant

We provide financial and lifestyle education to help people have retirement success.

After recognizing his clients need for financial planning advice through work at his CPA firm, Mike Ruff earned the Certified Financial Planner designation in 1990 and the AICPA Personal Financial Specialist designation in 1991.

Mike earned his CPA certificate in 1977. His work in public accounting encompassed estate tax planning, estate tax return preparation and fiduciary income tax preparation (estates and trusts). The CPA firm was sold in 1997 so he could devote full time to the financial planning firm.

Mike has been published on the topic of financial planning in the Journal of Accountancy, the monthly magazine of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). He has been a speaker at the AICPA Tax Season Update Conference and at the Texas Tech Tax Conference.

Tax control and wealth management sum up Mike’s professional focus for over three decades. With the financial opportunity and corresponding uncertainty that the future presents, professional judgment tempered by successful experience is the key asset Mike brings to the table.
