Chris Sittner CPA
“Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value. Look around at how people want to get more out of life than they put in. A man of value will give more than he receives. Be creative, but make sure that what you create is not a curse for mankind.”
My wealth management approach is not one-size-fits-all; it needs to be tailored to each client, taking into account their goals and desires. I make sure that I understand the client before making any financial decisions, which allows me to become a trusted advisor.
A client should seek me out as their financial advisor if they have a complex tax situation, are seeking an advisor who emphasizes understanding and communication, and want a lifelong financial guide and mentor.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
I am passionate about the arts. Without a strong arts community, you cannot have a strong community. That’s why I serve on the board for the Portland’5 Centers for the Performing Arts Foundation.
What motivates you to get out of bed each morning?
Seeking the next great adventure, big or small, cerebral or tangible. Tackling a complex financial situation can be as fulfilling as devouring the next great food cart find, in its own way. Finding these adventures fuels me every day.
What do you do for self-care?
The best way to de-stress is a good, easy read, be it a novel, non-fiction, or pulp.
