His expertise centers on financial planning from a goals-based planning approach. “My approach to planning is centered on helping people and families identify and articulate their goals. Further, I spend time finding out the 'why' behind those goals. To me, the reason for the goal is more important than having a goal itself.” Mercedes is well-suited for the planning role given his various experiences in financial services from management, consumer lending, retail banking and wealth management. “With my background, I’m able to bring proactive solutions to clients that benefit their entire lifestyle, even things non-finance related.” Mercedes' motto is ‘wealth is more than money.’

He and his wife, Shayne, live in Overland Park, have two daughters and are expecting their first boy in February 2018. He is a graduate of the class of 2017 Centurions Leadership program though the Greater Kansas City Chamber and serves on the KU Advancement Board.
