A culture of service From a collaborative, family team
Marty learned firsthand how important financial planning can be when, in the 1970s, a grocery chain put his father’s small store in Knox, Pennsylvania, out of business in just a few months. Although Marty’s father didn’t have a pension, his lifelong commitment to investing helped enable his parents to live many comfortable years in retirement.
That experience inspired Marty throughout his career as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, during which he helped hundreds of successful individuals and families accumulate and preserve wealth to protect their futures. It also served as his motivation for founding Kooman & Associates, so he could provide independent and objective financial planning advice based on the needs of his clients.
Marty has always been a strong believer in giving back to the community, which is now his primary focus. He is a Past President of the Altoona Rotary Club, and has served on the boards of Mount Aloysius College, the Altoona Symphony, and the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art. Marty is also an avid sailor and captains his San Juan 21 sailboat at Lake Glendale.
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and CFP® in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.
