Team Biographies


Daniel J. Staub, CFP®

Founder and Business Consultant

Daniel Staub founded Staub Financial in 1989 with a passion to help clients build solid financial plans so that they could enjoy the fruits of their labor in retirement. After 31 years of service, Dan will partially retire in January 2021.  Moving forward, Dan will be available to consult on tax, retirement and life insurance planning but will no longer be involved in the investment side of the business. Dan will also serve as Staub Financial's Client Relationship Director, which means more golf, lunches and other social functions with existing clients.

Dan is an Albion College Alumni, a CFP® and holds his life insurance license in many states. He is one of the longest tenured independent representatives of SIGMA Financial Corporation.
