PITTSBURGH: D.B. Root & Company prides itself in recruiting and developing outstanding talent.

The goal of the program is to develop the associate advisor into a full-time producing advisor in the firm within 12 months.


Mike joined the firm in 2010 as a registered assistant to David Root, CEO of the firm. Root says,“Michael has been a huge asset to me and our clients over the past three years. He not only learned the business quickly, he has had laser sharp focus and great attention to detail. He is extremely passionate about helping clients and has a very bright future ahead. We couldn’t be happier about him launching his advisor career with D.B. Root & Company.”


As Financial Advisor, Michael will now be responsible for asset allocation and risk management decisions on portfolios, retirement projections for clients, placing trades and directing estate planning and tax planning issues. “I was able to learn from some of the best in the industry, and had a great opportunity to work closely with some outstanding clients. I am thrilled to now have the opportunity to serve my own roster of clients.”


Michael holds the Series 7 and 66 securities registrations through Commonwealth Financial, as well as the Accredited Investment Fiduciary ® designation. As a financial advisor with D.B. Root & Company, Michael’s mission is to provide individuals, families, and non-profit organizations with comprehensive and unbiased financial planning and wealth-management services. He and his team help provide solutions to individuals’ goals on retirement, education, estate, tax and generational wealth planning.
