Branch Service Manager/Senior Investment Assoc
Always up to tackling the challenges that come with her role as team manager for the Heide Wealth Management Group, Tina draws on 30 years of experience in the financial services industry to help the team provide the solutions and quality service our clients have come to expect. Her conscientious attitude in serving others led Tina to a life career in financial services that began at age 17, working in the margin department for A.G. Edwards & Sons (a predecessor firm of Wells Fargo Advisors) at their home office in St. Louis, Missouri.
Tina’s eight years in St. Louis allowed her to learn about the needs of clients from a unique perspective that can only come from being in the home office of a major financial firm. Through this experience, she joined Dave Heide as an assistant in 1999 to help him with the rapid growth of the branch in Palos Heights. When Dave stepped down as branch manager after the Wells Fargo Advisors merger, he asked her to join the Heide team. He recognized the value Tina had provided in the growth of the branch was now needed for the expanding team. During this time, she passed her security exams, becoming one of the first registered assistants in the branch.
Manteno, Illinois, is home to Tina and her husband, Chad. Their blended family includes four teenagers and two rescue dogs. They enjoy travel and motorcycle rides, when life allows.
