Kevin Olson, CFP™

Trade Desk Associate





I joined the Planning Center in 2022 and bring with me 7 years of investment experience after working for The Vanguard Group in Scottsdale, Arizona. I am responsible for running our trade desk which includes daily trades as well as weekly rebalancing of accounts. I also serve as a member of our Investment Committee.

Work hard, have fun, help others

I was born and raised in Moline, Illinois and my wife and I could not be more excited to be raising our two kids in Moline, IL. We are an active family and love to be outdoors as much as possible. Some of our best family memories have come from vacations in the mountains of Arizona and Colorado. I enjoy coaching youth recreation sports and have coached my son and daughter in soccer and basketball. We love to ride bikes as a family and get on our bikes whenever we can whether that’s date night, trying out a new coffee shop, or grabbing an ice cream cone.
