Professional Approach

After graduating from Oakland University with a Master’s Degree in Finance, Dominic began his career with a concentration on comprehensive wealth management. He furthered his education at Walsh College by completing courses in risk management, investment analysis, income tax, estate planning, and retirement planning. He has also achieved the designations of Financial Planning Specialist and Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM through the College for Financial Planning.


After 10 years of proven growth within the industry, he was honored with the title of Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager. And from 2014 to 2018, he was presented with the Five Star Wealth Manager award as announced in Hour Detroit, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes magazine.


The creation of Rochester Wealth Strategies came from a desire to build a culture that was truly dedicated to clients and the community. Though grateful for his years at a larger firm, Dominic wanted to establish a client experience that was more personal and one that differentiated itself from the industry. Today, he works side-by-side with his clients to help them create roadmaps for retirement, in addition to providing income and legacy planning thereafter.
