Sam Hammes

Financial Advisor

Sam spent the first 13 years of his career as an advisor in employee benefits.  He helped businesses mitigate risks within their employee benefits programs, while educating employees on their benefits packages and how to navigate the complicated world of health insurance. 

Through this experience, Sam developed a passion for helping people when they are going through some of the most difficult times in their lives.  Understanding that a one size fits all approach is not the answer, Sam’s priority is to get to know his clients on a personal level built on a foundation of trust.  From there, he helps build comprehensive financial plans based on each client’s specific short- and long-term goals.

Outside of work, Sam is an avid hunter, live music enthusiast, and enjoys spending time with his family in Clear Lake, IA during the summers.
