Who We Are / What We Do

As the Founder and Managing Partner of Kastler Consulting Group,  Michael’s vision has been to offer unique value to his clients with education and services that are independent of product sales commissions and are available to clients of all income levels. We address many of the key financial issues in all components of our economy: Individuals, Communities and Businesses. 

Starting in the early 2000’s with a passion for personal finance, Michael began his financial journey by leading small church groups in the “Financial Peace University” program.  Since then, he has been involved with other publicly available finance programs and in 2009 wrote his own workbook entitled “Get a G.R.A.S.P. on your Budget and your Cash” with a corresponding budgeting software program entitled “Family Series,” based on Microsoft Excel.

His journey continued academically as well.  In 2014, Michael completed all the course work for certification in financial planning from Walsh Business College.  He has an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Lawrence Technological University, received his Executive Education from Harvard Business School and attended the Wayne State University/Kaufman Foundation’s “Fast Track” Entrepreneur Program. 

Combining these real life skills and academics, we bring our clients unique value in developing your personalized financial plan, helping you get out of debt, set realistic financial goals and develop a personalized strategy to get there.
