Erik O. Klumpp
Chessie Advisors, LLC
Founder, President & Financial Planner
Fee-Only financial planner located in the Rochester Hills, Shelby Township & Utica, Michigan area of Metro Detroit, serving clients locally and across the country.
Erik founded Chessie Advisors, LLC in 2014 after more than a decade in the financial planning industry. Throughout his career, he has provided financial counseling to clients from all walks of life, from assembly-line workers to teachers to mid-level engineers to high-level corporate executives and everything in between.
With Chessie Advisors, Erik wanted to turn his primary focus to those seemingly underserved by traditional advisors and offer comprehensive financial planning and investment advice without minimum asset levels to teachers, engineers, young professionals, and widows. Erik is also President of Chessie Tax, LLC, an income tax preparation firm serving individuals and small business owners.
Erik spent a year test-driving a mechanical engineering degree at Kettering University before going on to earn his bachelor of science in Finance from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. He knew he wanted to focus his career on personal financial advising. After graduation, Erik worked with a number of top registered investment advisor firms in Michigan before founding Chessie Advisors and Chessie Tax in 2014.
Erik is a Certified Financial Planner™ professional. He is also an Enrolled Agent. He is a member of the XY Planning Network, a member of The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), and a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA).
