|Michael Fitzgerald||CFP®, CPA, CLU||/files/48572/Mike-Fitzgerald.jpg||President and Founder||
Hello, my name is Michael Fitzgerald, President of Fitzgerald Wealth Management. I joined Equitable Advisors in 2002 to build a wealth management business leading clients to financial independence and security. Client relationships begin with a custom designed, tax efficient financial and estate strategy as a lead to decision making for investment management and insurance needs. I decided to build a team of like-minded professionals in 2010 and opened Fitzgerald Wealth Management. My individual practice within our firm focuses on serving the financial and estate planning needs of C-Suite, senior and middle management executives of large companies, many in the energy sector, entrepreneurs/ business owners, retirees, widows and divorcees. Professionally I am a CERTIFIED FINACIAL PLANNER™ professional (CFP®), a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and carry the FINRA Series 7 and Series 66 Licenses. I am also a personal financial section member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
After graduating from the University of Texas in 1988 with a Master’s Degree in Public Accountancy, I worked five years with Arthur Andersen auditing Fortune 500 energy companies and smaller family owned businesses. Concurrently, an opportunity presented to purchase a fledgling retail operation in a local shopping mall allowing me to follow a personal dream of being a business owner entrepreneur. The success of the retail venture led me to leave public accounting and to build a chain of retail stores in Houston, Texas through 2002. Concern for the impact online shipping would have on shopping mall retail operations combined with desire to spend greater time with my wife and children led me to sell the stores, thankfully with a significant profit.
I enjoy the opportunity to support local schools and non-profit organizations. As a parent of a child with Down Syndrome, I actively support many local charities with a concentration on those assisting individuals with disabilities. I am the past Board President of the Family to Family Network, a Houston-based non-profit providing information, training, referral and support services to families with children having disabilities.
My wife, Helen and I have lived in the Katy, Texas community since we married in 1988. We have been blessed with two wonderful children, Blake and Taryn. In my free time, I enjoy running, golfing, traveling, watching college and NFL football and great food.
