John Bovard, CFP®, EA
I work closely with families, business owners and young professionals to provide advice on retirement planning, investment and risk management, cash flow and debt management, estate planning and tax strategies. I work with business owners and employees to help not only with their personal finances but also the company retirement plans. I started Incline Wealth Advisors to provide a deeper level of service to local business owners, pre retirees and young professionals.
I graduated from Thomas More University, was a member of the men’s basketball team and currently serve on the alumni board of directors. I earned my certificate in financial planning from Xavier University.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and five children. I also enjoy playing and coaching basketball.
