Our Story In 2000 Kris Staples joined his father with a goal to provide continuity to clients and carry on the legacy of the firm. His focus on investment and financial planning was complimentary to Art’s existing deep knowledge of insurance. With a transition to an independent broker/dealer in 2004, Art and Kris were able to provide true comprehensive wealth management to their loyal clients.In 2004 Trevor started his journey in this business learning and growing within an organization in the Twin Cities. His desire to serve clients by using best-in-class solutions and utilizing technology quickly outgrew the capabilities of this firm. In 2008 Kris and Trevor joined forces and using their experiences from the past and willingness to learn and grow, have transformed the business into what it is today. The seeds of “doing the right thing” that Art planted 41 years ago remain a driving force in the experience each client has with Staples Financial. As the firm grows, coupled with an elite broker dealer in LPL, we will continue to provide suitable advice possible to our valued clients.
