Patrick McGorisk has a solid and simple investment philosophy. He believes in seeking to bring value through knowledge and discipline to investment and retirement planning for hard working folks.
He developed that philosophy over many years, since he graduated from college in 1985. Looking to open the door to a career in financial services, Patrick began working in the operations department of a Detroit-based Stock Brokerage firm. After obtaining his securities license in 1986, Pat leveraged his experience in operations to better serve clients and became a Branch Manager in 1992. What started as a career to become a stockbroker evolved into becoming a highly successful executive leading many offices in multiple states.
Pat holds a BA from Michigan State University and an MBA from Wayne State University.
In 1999 Patrick’s brokerage firm was purchased by H&R Block, and he joined others working to help clients integrate their tax preparation with sound financial advice for their retirement and investment planning needs. As luck– or destiny – would have it, this was the second time both Tim and Pat’s career paths would cross. The foundation of Core Wealth Consultants LLC is rooted in the friendship that developed over their career intersections and their joint determination to serve investors professionally.
Pat’s desire to work with clients directly lead him to purchase several H&R Block franchise offices in 2005. Tax clients kept asking for help investing, so the move back to serving retail clients was a fun, natural progression. Patrick’s franchise group now includes eight offices, where he works with the tax professionals to help each client individually with their specific investment needs.
Pat officially joined Tim in 2012 to help with the creation of Core Wealth Consultants LLC. Tim and Pat share a desire to help average people on a cost-effective basis, without the bias of firm specific investing. Core Wealth’s success is a direct result of the founding principles integrated in everything we do.
Patrick and his wife Denise live in the metro Detroit area, raising four active kids. Kelsey just graduated from Michigan State, Brenden attends Western Michigan University, Megan is in year two at Michigan State, and Charlie is a junior in high School. The family shares Pat’s love for the lake and all outdoor activities. After work and school you will most likely find the crew playing year round at the cottage in Northern Michigan…although, on Saturdays in the fall, tailgating takes priority in East Lansing for Pat and his family.
