Ken began working at Long View Wealth Management, LLC shortly after graduating from the University of Connecticut with his Bachelor's degree. He wanted to use his skills on a global level, so he spent two years teaching English to children in South Korea. Ken then chose to serve his country and joined the United States Navy, which allowed him to visit countries such as Spain, Greece and Turkey. After fulfilling his military obligations, he returned to Connecticut to continue working with his step-father, Tom Hardecker, at Long View Wealth Management, LLC. After spending years gaining all the financial knowledge he could from Tom, in January 2022 Tom joined the ranks of retirement and handed the Long View keys over to Ken. Accepting this offer is something that Ken takes very seriously and continues to treat all those who are part of the Long View family with the respect that Tom did throughout his whole career. Ken works with clients of all ages. He enjoys helping clients invest in their values and giving them an understanding and respect for their financial situation. As a former teacher, Ken sees the value in educating the public on how expenses like healthcare and education can affect your personal financial goals. He has an extensive knowledge of Medicare, and helps seniors navigate the complexities of the Medicare system. As a CERTIFED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Ken will work with you to create a financial plan and take control of your financial future, no matter what stage of life you are in.
Ken is a registered representative with LPL Financial and an investment advisor representative with LPL Financial. His industry registrations include FINRA Series 7 (General Securities Representative), NASAA Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Exam) through LPL Financial and he is also a licensed Health and Life Insurance Agent.
When Ken and his wife, Christen, are not exploring the world, fulfilling their passion for geography and traveling, they reside in Manchester, CT with their rescue dog, Honey. They are expecting their first child in July of 2022!
