My experiences, education, and business philosophy is an open book for clients to use in understanding how I can help them. “Financial planning or investing is a personal component of your life and confidentiality and proper attention from your Advisor will make your success more certain”.

I have been married for over 30 years. My parents knew the importance of education and giving back to the community. My Dad was an Engineer and my Mom was a Chemist. As a child I lived in States where my Dad was part of a construction project. I have lived in Delaware, Texas, Illinois, California and New Jersey. I graduated early from high and work on the Alaska Pipeline prior to attending  Claremont McKenna College. After graduation in 1981 I moved to Denver Colorado. 

In 1981 Denver was not the booming city it is today. I took a job as a oil and gas landman for a short period of time. In 1982 I joined the Election Staff of Jack Swigert Campaign for the 6th Congressional District race in Colorado. Jack was a well known Apollo 13 Astronaut. He was slated to land on the moon but mechanical problems on the way to the moon force the mission to abort the mission. Jack was diagnosed with cancer during the Campaign and was sworn in posthumously. It was a great experience to spend time with Jack and get to know him for that short period of time.

After his death, I had the opportunity to work with my Dad building houses in Summit County. At that point the real estate market was feeling the effects of the energy bust in Colorado. It was during this period that I supplement my income by working in restaurant business where I met my future wife: Leslie.

In 1992, I received my Certified Financial Planner CFP® designation while working for The Acacia Group.  Then in 1995 went out on my own and started a financial planning firm that would morph into JW Lerew and Company, Inc.

As a potential planning and investment client, you want to find a true success in achieving your goals, by building a working relationship with a Planner/Advisor that you are comfortable holding discussions with. Financial Planning is built upon a good foundation of ideas that can be implemented in helping individuals and businesses achieve long term goals and aspirations of success.  When you choose the right Advisor, your story is easy to tell and your working relationship defines your goals and achievements.   

In 2000,  JW Lerew and Company Inc. was started and continues the wonderful partnership with clients. Let's get together for an initial meeting to find out how we can become a part of your financial team. I personally invite you to join us in completely your goals and aspirations for financial success.
