Matthew Lemke, AAMS

    Financial Advisor, Branch Manager, RJFS
    Matt began his career as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones where he was given training of the highest standard. As Matt’s business grew so did the needs of his clients. Growth, accompanied with the changing needs and demands of clients prompted Matt to explore other alternatives within the financial services industry. This ultimately led to Mr. Lemke forming Summit Wealth Strategies in 2006 and offering securities through Raymond James Financial Services in order to be able to truly advise his clients on an unbiased, independent platform. Matt and his Wife, Claire, are life-long residents of Crystal Lake and are happily raising their three beautiful children in the same community where they grew up. Matt has also been very active in supporting Friends of MCC Foundation and is currently a Past President.

    Kristina Gibson

    Registered Representative, RJFS
    With a desire to put her expertise learned in business over the past two decades Kristi made the decision to become a Registered Representative and join Summit Wealth Strategies in 2010. Having been a Branch Office Manager at Edward Jones and Miller Lemke Wealth Advisers as well as being a mortgage processor, she was well acquainted with the financial industry so this was a natural progression for her to get her Series 7 and 66 securities registrations. Kristi recognizes that helping people achieve their financial goals requires not only professional expertise and experience, but a trusting and loyal relationship as well. With Summit Wealth Strategies being an independent office, it strengthens her conviction to allow her to bring new clients to us knowing that our advisors can develop the strategies and plans for our clients’ particular needs, concerns, and dreams utilizing all of the resources and research available and not being limited in the products and investments that can be offered. Kristi earned her Bachelor of Science from Iowa State University. One of her passions is volunteering, especially with Barrington Area Council on Aging, Habitat for Humanity and Camp Algonquin to help those who are in need. When not working or volunteering, Kristi enjoys riding motorcycles and traveling.
