Derek Van Calligan, RICP®, CFP®, joined Sharkey, Howes & Javer in August of 2017.
Derek has been in the financial services industry since 2015. Before starting at Sharkey, Howes & Javer, he worked for wealth management firms in Minneapolis, MN and Milwaukee, WI.
Derek was born and raised in Wisconsin and graduated from the Financial Planning program at University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. He passed the Certified Financial Planner™ examination shortly after graduation. Derek expanded his knowledge in the field of retirement planning and attained the Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) from The American College.
Serving others has always been a big part of Derek’s life. Outside of helping his clients find financial freedom, Derek volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado spending time with his Little, Patrick. He is also an active member of the Financial Planning Association of Colorado.
When not in the office, you can most likely find Derek up in the mountains skiing, hiking, or shooting landscape photography (unless it is a Sunday in the fall, when he will most likely be watching his beloved Packers).
