Robert L. Wink Jr.

Co-Founder | Advisor
Primary Role: Financial Advisor with a Fiduciary Obligation.
Bob is the Co-Founder and Owner of Summit Financial Consulting, LLC., a holistically run financial planning practice in Sterling Heights, Michigan. He began his working career as a Mechanical Engineer in the automotive field in the seventies, eventually moving up to an Assistant Project Manager. In 1987, he made the decision to make a career change into financial planning, an area of interest to him since his college days. Bob has always enjoyed teaching clients and colleagues, young and old, the finer concepts of financial planning, and equally important – how to service clients. In the 32 years he has been in this business, Bob has touched a countless number of lives and has been able to pass his wealth of knowledge, work ethic, and client-first mentality on to his sons, Ken and Jim. The pride and satisfaction of establishing his highly successful family owned financial planning practice, and working with his sons on a daily basis, has been more than he ever hoped for. Bob has no plans of retiring at this time due to the fact that he enjoys what he’s doing. It has been a very rewarding career because he truly enjoys helping people. When out of the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife of over 40 years, Bonnie, and their 5 grandchildren. Bob also enjoys golf, hunting, and fishing trips to the Upper Peninsula with his father-in-law, Norman.

Advisor | Investment Research Analyst
Primary Role: Financial Advisor with a Fiduciary Obligation.
While I was studying personal finance at Central Michigan University, my end goal was to find a firm that met two very important criteria. First, I wanted a firm that supported and encouraged me as I tackled all of my licensing exams, including the Series 7, Series 63, Series 65, Life & Variable, Health & Accident, and Property & Casualty. The Wink family exceeded my expectations by far as they not only encouraged me, but helped me grow through practical application of everything I have learned. They really brought me under their wings and treated me as a part of their family. Second, I wanted to find an employer that would not force me to sell specific products and would allow me to do whatever it takes to best serve my clients. Once again, the Wink family blew me away. Being an independent firm, not only means entrepreneurial freedom for the advisors, but it means we are able to use any product available to best assist our clients. Here at Summit, we never have and we never will focus on the commission. Our number one goal is to serve our clients to the best of our abilities.
