MANISTEE — Tom Krahe, long-time owner of Krahe & Associates on Washington Street in Manistee, announces the addition of a new planner to his staff. John M. Lugauer, a resident of Arcadia, joined the office in early May.

“I am so pleased to welcome John as my new associate,” Krahe said. “I have looked long and hard to find a person who would bring the best possible combination of credentials and experience to this office.

“While I am planning to work for many more years, bringing John on board is the most important first step toward my eventual retirement,” Krahe said. “He will provide a clear long-term continuation of my business, and a long-term future of highly qualified and professional services to our clients.”

While from the Kalamazoo area, Lugauer and his wife Julie have vacationed in Manistee County for many years. They built a home and moved with their two children to Arcadia in 2011.

“This is an area we have loved for a long time,” Lugauer said. “We decided that we wanted to raise our children here, so we moved to Manistee County by choice.”

Lugauer is a certified financial planner, having met the rigorous education, examination, experience and ethical requirements of the CFP board. He is a graduate of Taylor University and he opened his own office in Schoolcraft in 1999.

Krahe and Associates Financial Planning Services is located at 142 Washington St. in Manistee. The company can also be found at InvestManistee.com.
