Alumnus Kevin Kroskey was recently featured in a Financial Advisor Magazine article, “The Power of Perseverance.” After beginning his career as a high school physics teacher, the tech boom spiked Kroskey’s interests to become a financial planner. So, he decided to pursue his MBA of Finance from The University of Akron. What happened in his life during this time period is an inspiring story of overcoming extreme obstacles to live out his dream.
After receiving his MBA in Finance in 2005, Kroskey started True Wealth Design LLC, an Akron based wealth management company that serves about 70 clients and manages $40 million in assets.
Kroskey is thankful for the value that the MBA has provided him, saying, “The program very much helped me develop my critical thinking and strategic decision-making skills. Whether helping clients with technical work in the area of wealth management or making business decisions in the face of competing objectives, these skills are invaluable.”
