Michael has spent the last 16 years working in all facets of the lighting industry, working on multi-million dollar projects from specification and design, manufacturing, and purchasing lighting for independent contractors. He enjoyed his time in lighting, working on exciting projects such as the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood Florida and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Miami, Florida. When Michael met his wife, he saw her successes of working with her clients design, plan and implementation of their retirement strategies for almost 18 years. That was the moment he realized her career was much more self-satisfying than the course he was on in lighting. Shortly after the completion of those projects Michael decided to join his wife Lynne in October 2019 at Alliance Financial Group.
As a trusted Field Representative with Alliance Financial Group, his purpose and drive is clear: to provide families with the financial guidance and strategies to live a life of abundance. Michael's overarching mission is to not only empower families with financial independence, but to ensure they have a true foundation of literacy. Bottom line, he focuses his knowledge on helping families plan for their own financial longevity and enjoy their retirement with confidence.
Michael's wife, Lynne Kimmich is the Director of Girls Going Places, an entrepreneurial conference held annually at Florida Gulf Coast University and the America's Small Business Development Center for young women 12-18 years old. He has joined forces with Lynne to continue the mission to build and champion community initiatives and programs that promote the importance of planning to maximize wealth and reach financial aspirations. Girls Going Places is proud to be a leader in a movement that supports and mentors tomorrow's generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders, as well as educating today's youth about the advantages of business ownership and financial independence. Over the past 21 years, Girls Going Places has given back $300,000 to our communities. We are very proud to announce that Girls Going Places has launched their inaugural Girls Going Places Scholarship Run to continue impacting the lives of our next community leaders.
