WealthGuard Inc., an independent consultancy that provides objective, expert guidance and resources to individual investors, announced today the addition of Syracuse University’s Michael Mattson to their Founders Circle. Mattson, presently the Executive Director in the Office of Gift Planning, brings 30+ years experience in the financial industry to WealthGuard and the services they provide.
"The addition of Michael to our Founders Circle will bring invaluable expertise to our company and clients," said WealthGuard founder and CEO, Roger Gershman. "Our success has been guided through solid, qualified input from our advisers and we are very excited to add Michael to this list of notable contributors.”
Leading the gift-planning program to support Syracuse's recently completed $1 billion capital campaign, Mattson and his staff generated planned gifts of over $300 million.

Additionally, Mattson was an executive officer in the banking industry in Nebraska and Iowa.
"I'm looking forward to contributing to an already impressive team and extremely valuable new public service," Mattson said, commenting on his new position as a member of WealthGuard's Founders Circle. “Providing unbiased, transparent advice to high net worth investors, and keeping their advisor’s performance in check, is a major and worthwhile undertaking.”
