President and Owner
Mike Raitt is President and Owner of Almega Wealth Management. He started his career as a CPA in public accounting in 1985 with the largest public accounting firm in the world at that time. After three years in public accounting, Mike moved into corporate accounting for the ensuing nine years as a Controller and Vice President of Finance of various multi-million dollar manufacturing companies. In 1997, Mike turned his focus to the personal financial services industry. Mike attained the position of Regional Vice President as an independent rep with a subsidiary of Citigroup and, in the process of helping hundreds of families with their financial matters, he also recruited, trained and developed dozens of new agents, helping them get a start in the industry. Sensing a need to offer a broader base of competitive products and services, Mike elected to start his own company February 2001 and has since then added additional companies under the “Almega” brand name.
