About. Tony

Tony DeVecht serves as President and Director of Operations for College Planning Advisors of Michigan, LLC, a firm specializing in optimization of student services and funding strategies with parents to insure that their students dream school is a reality but not at the expense of mom & dads retirement . Tony lives in Grand Haven, Michigan where he and his wife Julie raised their daughter Hannah, and son Aris whose college educations they have successfully funded and now are enjoying their empty nest status.

Tony has served West Michigan and Mid-Western businesses and clients in a variety of capacities in the financial services areas in his 35 year career. He spent many years as a turnaround business consultant assisting struggling businesses to profitability or ascend to their next level of progression. Over time many of these clients began to call on Tony for help in business succession planning or liquidation in order to begin to plan for their retirement.

Tony’s past work led him to the realization that most financial advisors lack a holistic approach (coordination between funding college educations, retirement savings and tax planning) to retirement planning. Tony is licensed and certified to offer you this holistic and coordinated approach to College Planning and Funding with an eye toward preserving your retirement and minimizing any threat to it.

Tony’s goal is to educate you in this very complex process in hopes that he can help you avoid many of the costly mistakes that he made in this process with his own children.

Now she has come on board to become one of those advisors, confident in the type of work they can do for students. Her experiences in the College of Education at GVSU made it evident that she has a knack for working with students and her passion makes her perfect for our team.
