Chris Burke

Retirement Plan Consulting
Senior Consultant

As a retirement plan consultant at LoVasco, Chris has a pivotal role: he is responsible for helping plan sponsors make well thought out decisions regarding their retirement benefit program. Chris’s background in law, and financial planning at a large independent wealth management firm and Merrill Lynch, make him well positioned to give guidance to plan sponsors and participants.

Given the retirement savings crisis in America, Chris’s goal is to help plan sponsors provide a simpler retirement benefit, designed to be user friendly, cost effective, and to keep participants on track to fully fund their retirement.

Chris enjoys playing hockey on the weekends and spending time with his wife, daughters, and dog. He is a sitting Board Member of the Detroit Society for Human Resource Management (DSRHM) chapter and serves on the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Committee to plan the annual SOCK Fundraiser. He was named by the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) in 2021 as one of the top 100 retirement plan advisors in the country under 40 years old. In 2019, Chris was named to the FT 401 Top US Retirement Advisors* list, recognizing the top advisors in the country servicing defined contribution plans.
