Michael G. Skowfoe
Wealth Advisor | Partner
Michael Skowfoe knew from the start that he wanted a career in finance, and he soon realized that he excelled in the personal interaction with clients that wealth management provides. Today, as a Founding Partner and Wealth Manager, he helps business owners feel confident that their retirement is on track so they can get back to running their business.
Michael’s career began in 1998 and included 18 years at Wells Fargo Bank, most recently in its Private Bank as a Senior Vice President and Wealth Advisor. He wanted to build something different from what large institutions focused on sales and investments could deliver. With Fortress, Michael realized his dream of offering comprehensive planning to help clients live their one best financial life without regret.
Outside of the office, the Jacksonville resident enjoys all things outdoors. As a native Floridian, he has been a boater his entire life, but he also loves time in mountains. He has a passion for travel and he would like to sail a catamaran across the Atlantic.
