At Snow Creek we‘ve been helping clients build, preserve and manage wealth for more than two decades. And we integrate financial planning with accounting, investment management, and your financial goals.
Snow Creek’s principals — David Goldberg, a Certified Financial Planner ™, and Larry Sacks, a Certified Public Accountant — have worked together with individual clients for 25 years, often referring clients to each other. So in 2001, it made perfect sense to bring their experience together to give clients a single source for managing and preserving wealth.
