Todd began his career in 1990, and is currently Senior Vice President, Financial Advisor.  He has served as the Branch Manager of the Billings office since 2002. He received a degree in business administration from the University of Montana and has also earned the Certified Wealth Strategist ® designation from the Cannon Financial Institute. Todd has taught college level courses in both investments and economics, and serves as advisor to a portfolio managed by a local college investment class. For many years he has been a frequent guest on the KTVQ Morning TV Show discussing the markets and investments.

Growing up in Billings when it was still a small town, he enjoyed all that small community life had to offer. From playing baseball at Lissa field to Saturday matinees at one of the three downtown movie theaters, attending school at Eastern Elementary, and getting dragged downtown to go back-to-school shopping and riding the escalator at JCPenney, Billings has always been home. He still enjoys all the community and state has to offer and relishes every opportunity to be outside. Recently, Todd has been participating in shorter distance triathlons, not because he has a chance to win, but because he still enjoys competition and the training it requires, and mainly because “it is expensive to outgrow your clothes.” Todd and his wife, Pattie, have four children and two sons-in-law, and take great pride in the fine adults they have become.
