Chris Rueger, AAMS®
Founder and President
Chris Rueger is the President and Founder of Pilot Wealth Management, a primarily fee-based only financial advisory and investment management firm. With nearly two decades of experience, he serves as a financial planner who brings financial advice and investment guidance to families serious about their financial future.
Chris started his career in 1995 as an intern with PaineWebber, currently UBS, as a cold caller. It was there he learned how humbling a career in finance could be. However, he also found great joy in the relationships he was able to forge over the phone and in person. It was the relationships that drew him to financial planning and inspired him to pursue a career as an independent financial advisor down the road.
After years working with several different firms, he determined that the best way to serve his clients’ needs on a personal level was as an independent advisor, running his own firm. This led him to form Pilot Wealth Management in 2014.Chris holds a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Business Administration from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and is an Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS). He also holds FINRA Series 7 (General Securities) and Series 66 (Combined Uniform Investment Adviser and State Law) securities licenses, and life, health, and property and casualty insurance license.
