Shane explains his work ethic in the following way: “I simply treat my clients like I would want to be treated myself. I invest my clients' money carefully and intelligently.”
A graduate of Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska, with a degree in finance, Shane began his investment career in 1986 after gaining valuable experience as a tax practitioner and community banker. He is a member of the Financial Planning Association and the Wichita Downtown Lions Club. Shane was also a member of the board of directors of the Pension Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for 10 years. He served as chairman of the board for the last five years of his tenure, which ended in 2003, and he served as chairman of the Investment Committee for the over $2 billion dollar pension fund.
Shane’s spare time is filled helping his children with 4-H projects, the family ranch, and maintaining the acreage around his home. But the most fun, he says, is “doing anything” with his wife, Kianne, a national bank examiner, and children, Lauren and Luke. Shane and his family are members of the Hillside Christian Church.
