In 2011, Mike DiSalvo saw something in Krilogy that he hadn’t previously experienced in his career as a financial advisor – he saw the possibilities that true independence could offer his clients. He recognized a model that allowed him to serve as a fiduciary, placing the clients’ interests first, and a unique platform in which clients can be truly served and not sold. He joined the firm that same year to bring that model and the firm’s values to his clients, allowing him to fulfill his vision for client service and long-term client partnerships.
In 2015, Mike experienced a number of personal and professional milestones. He welcomed his first son in July and, later that year, began his journey to earn his Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) certification – a designation he earned after 13 months of hard work and dedication towards his studies. He played an instrumental role in Krilogy’s expansion to St. Charles County in 2015. Working closely with St. Charles County Branch Director Michael Brown to establish the Krilogy brand, he was named Team Lead for the group of growing advisors in the St. Charles County office. His ability to coach others and inspire all to strive for excellence have earned him the respect of his teammates, while his sincerity and sense of servant leadership have led to the trust his clients have placed in him.
In pursuing his CFP®, which is often recognized as a standard of excellence for competent and ethical personal financial planning, Mike was guided by his focus on being the best advisor he can be for his clients. He sees the impact of his coursework on a daily basis as he guides clients to help them reach their long-term financial goals.
Away from the office, Mike relishes in his role as “Dad” to AJ and Elizabeth. Mike and his wife, Torie, are very involved in Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Old Town Florissant, where they work together to assist with the high school youth group. Mike also serves on the parish’s finance committee. Mike pursues other areas of community service, including his role as a Governance Board member for FamilyForward, a leading non-profit serving children and families of abuse. Mike also enjoys being outside, working out, gardening, fly fishing, hunting and enjoying mother nature.
Mike graduated from Quincy University with a B.S. in Business Management and a Master of Business Administration. While at Quincy, Mike was a driving force for the Hawks and captained the team his final three seasons.
