Born and raised in Alaska, Kurt joined Leonard & Martens, LLC in 2005 after spending several years in San Francisco working in the heart of the investment securities business.

Kurt's financial consulting career started with Price Waterhouse in 1988, continuing in 1993 at Deloitte & Touche.  At Price Waterhouse and Deloitte, Kurt provided financial advisory services to a multitude of clients ranging from individuals and estates, to large corporations. 

In 1995, Kurt was hired as the Senior Vice President of Finance and Strategic Planning for Koniag, Inc., an Alaska Regional Native Corporation.  There, Kurt's vision was integral in the development of the company's long-term strategic financial plan.  This plan provided detail guidance for asset allocations between stocks, bonds, real estate and operating companies.  This plan was designed to successfully stabilize profitability while simultaneously decreasing risk exposure.

After several years with Koniag, Kurt accepted an opportunity to work with San Francisco investment firm, Mosaic Asset Management.  There, Kurt was integral in risk management, portfolio analysis, and investment product development and implementation.  At Mosaic, Kurt worked closely with some of the best minds on Wall Street.

In 2005, Kurt joined forces with Jeff Leonard of J.S. Leonard & Associates to form Leonard & Martens, LLC.

These honors are presented to select few independent financial advisors around the nation who have demonstrated an extremely high level of commitment to clients through personal service and professional integrity.  Membership is based mainly on prior fiscal year production.  Re-qualification is required annually.
