DALTON, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management's youngest teammate has recently become a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor.

Nate Tomkiewicz, 22, who began as a BMM intern three years ago, has recently completed a rigorous course program through the College for Financial Planning, which gives him specialized skills to guide retirees through their retirement by identifying the potential roadblocks — passing assets to heirs, navigating the complex world of healthcare, Social Security —  that they may encounter.

Tomkiewicz also be able to help retirees take advantage of opportunities as they move into the next — and arguably the most important — phase of their lives.

"Nate's continuing education and emphasis on client-centered problem solving is a shining example of our business model," BMM founder and CEO Allen Harris said. "Gone are the days when clients work with us just for good service and investment performance. These are minimum standards nowadays."
 
In order to receive the CRPC designation, Tomkiewicz completed 40-plus hours of rigorous coursework that concluded with a qualifying exam. In addition to his work with the College for Financial Planning, he recently received (in December), through an accelerated degree program, his bachelor of science in business from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and became a fulltime financial adviser at Berkshire Money Management.
