Michael Urch, CFP®

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™

Michael Urch began his financial services career at a Fortune 100 company, where he helped individuals and business owners make smarter financial decisions. Wanting to be an unbiased advisor for his clients, he was frustrated by this job because it focused on products and sales rather than comprehensive advice. Michael was attracted to Brown Wealth Management because of our client-focused and planning-centric culture. He loves serving clients at an independent, fee-only financial planning firm. He graduated magna cum laude from Bethel University with a BA in economics and finance as well as a minor in mathematics. He became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ in 2020.

Michael lives in Plymouth, Minnesota, where he likes to read, hike, and play guitar. When he is not working, Michael spends his time with his wife, Bri, reading books to his son, or serving in the small group ministry at Bethlehem Baptist Church.
