After being honorably discharged from the US Army, Fred graduated UW-Milwaukee with a degree in accounting and began his professional career at Ernst & Young in 1978. His first position was as a member of the audit staff, but soon became a manager and spent almost six years with the public accounting firm.
Fred then entered private accounting and become a chief financial officer within the financial industry for the duration of the 1980’s, but soon returned to public accounting and founded his own practice in 1994. Fred believes that community involvement is essential to developing an outlook that benefits all aspects of one’s life, including financial and business. Being involved in helping others in our community is like mining a vein of gold, providing a wealth of satisfaction, sense of well-being, and having friendships with individuals who are honest with high integrity.
Fred was born and raised on the southwest side of Milwaukee and currently lives in Brookfield with his wife Kristi. He has adult twin daughters, Jennifer and Kara.
