Curt is now in his 45th year with Burke Lawton Brewer & Burke. He joined the firm in 1968 when it was a relatively new investment firm based in Chestnut Hill, PA. Curt served the firm in many ways during his tenure – helping it to grow from a local brokerage focused entity into a regional financial advisor with clients around the country.
Over the years, Curt’s primary focus at the firm involved working with individuals, multi-generational families, and non-profit organizations. He not only helped these clients build and manage diversified investment portfolios geared towards their own specific financial needs, goals, and risk tolerance but also helped these clients work through the inevitable financial challenges they each faced. Many of Curt’s original clients are still with the firm thanks to his dedicated service and compassionate approach.
He frequently was able to craft creative solutions to the difficult financial situations faced by some of his clients. Although partially retired now, Curt remains active with the firm.
Prior to joining the firm, Curt spent twelve years with Pennwalt Corp., last serving as a marketing manager for the company’s broad array of steel mill products and equipment. Curt also spent six years as a tank unit commander in the United States Army, attaining the rank of Captain, with service in Korea.
Throughout his life, Curt has been a tireless supporter and leader of a number of non-profit organizations. He currently serves as a trustee of Chestnut Hill HealthCare, a Community Health Systems member hospital. He is a former Board Chair of the Springfield Rehabilitation Hospital and Assisted Living Center, and for many years has advocated on behalf of children’s health care issues through his volunteer service with the American Hospital Association. Curt is also the Treasurer/Director of Boardwalk Securities Corp. and previously served as the President of the Montgomery County Board of Prison Inspectors. A former Secretary General of the Military Order of Foreign Wars of the United States, Curt currently serves as Secretary/Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Pennsylvania Commandry’s Scholarship and Historic Preservation Foundation.
Curt is a graduate of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He is married to his wife of 52-plus years and loves spending time with his grandchildren.
