Mike Raitt is President and Owner of Almega Wealth Management. He started his career as a CPA in public accounting in 1985 with the largest public accounting firm in the world at that time. After 3 years in public accounting, Mike moved into corporate accounting for the ensuing 9 years as a Controller and Vice President of Finance of various multi-million dollar manufacturing companies. In 1997, Mike turned his focus to the personal financial services industry. Mike attained the position of Regional Vice President as an independent rep with a subsidiary of Citigroup and, in the process of helping hundreds of families with their financial matters, he also recruited, trained and developed dozens of new agents, helping them get a start in the industry. Sensing a need to offer a broader base of competitive products and services, Mike elected to start his own company February 2001 and has since then added additional companies under the “Almega” brand name.
