Todd Lesk

Email: tlesk9@gmail.com

About Me: Greetings!
After attending the University of South Florida with a keen emphasis on business and finance, I passionately embraced the financial services realm. Since 2008, I’ve had the honor of leading Lesk Financial, a prestigious financial services firm nestled in the heart of Florida.

I currently call Coral Springs, Florida, home, where I share the joys of life with my wonderful wife, our two dynamic children, a pair of spirited Golden Doodles, and one rather unconventional cat who’s convinced he’s part of the dog pack!

My professional journey has been largely centered on long-term care, life insurance, and alternative fixed-income products. With the mission to enlighten clients about retirement intricacies, tax-optimized investing, and leveraging estate planning with these financial tools, my aim has always been to create a meaningful impact. Engaging with Lesk Financial is not just about expert guidance; it’s about strategic planning that can potentially mitigate a range of taxes, from income to estate.

I firmly believe that effective financial counsel transcends mere planning. It’s about holistic understanding, encompassing every facet of your life, not just the numbers on a spreadsheet. With a rich experience spanning over two and a half decades in financial planning, I’ve gained insights into diverse needs and aspirations. My goal is to help crystallize your objectives and chart a path tailored to your aspirations.

At Lesk Financial, our doors and minds are always open. Anytime you wish to delve deeper into financial knowledge, we’re here, committed to imparting education the right way.
