Tom has over 25 years of experience helping individual investors and their families obtain their financial goals. After graduating with a finance degree from the University of Notre Dame, Tom began his career in the tax division of the Chicago office of Arthur Andersen. He returned to the Fox Valley where he joined Northwestern Mutual /R. W. Baird and honed his skills and expertise in the areas of insurance and investment management. After a few years with Banc One Securities Corporation, Tom realized that he could better serve his clients as an independent Investment Advisor, which resulted in the formation of Suttner Financial Group in 2003.
In 2009, Tom founded Verus Investment Advisory Group, a locally owned and independent Registered Investment Advisory firm. The firm is dedicated to listening to and understanding its clients' problems and designing comprehensive plans to create solutions and help clients attain their goals. As a financial advisor, Tom is deeply committed to both growing and preserving client assets. He has built his advisory practice by combining sound investment methodology with holistic financial planning and very personal client relationships.
Tom resides in Appleton with his wife, Tina. They have four adult children and a growing family of in-laws and grandchildren. Tom enjoys time with his family and he is an avid golfer, cyclist, and outdoorsman. Tom’s appreciation for his community fuels his desire to share both his time and resources by serving on several committees and boards of local non-profit organizations.
