Joel Van Buren

Financial Planning Associate

Biography

I decided to pursue a career in wealth management as a teenager. I have always viewed the field as a way to combine my professional interests with the chance to work closely with members of my community. With the goal of becoming a financial planner in mind, I attended Michigan State University and graduated in 2021 with a degree in Finance and a minor in International Business. My role at ECM is exactly what I hoped my work would entail when I began to learn about this industry years ago. It allows me to apply my interest and education in Finance to helping others. I am both thrilled and proud to be a member of our team here, I could not ask for a more ideal opportunity.

When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, longboarding, playing tennis, visiting new restaurants and bars, and attending concerts with friends. As a lifelong Spartan, I had not spent any time in Ann Arbor before beginning my journey at ECM, but I am enjoying my time in a city with such a unique atmosphere. I look forward to establishing roots here and becoming a member of the community.
