Andre Buckley joined Rotary several years ago in Saginaw to meet like-minded people who wanted to enrich their community. He knew that joining the Midland Noon Rotary Club was a good way to do the same here, and became a member of our Club a few months ago.
The oldest of five siblings, Andre was born and grew up in Saginaw, but moved with his wife and three children to Midland three years ago.
“We have embraced this city and it has embraced us back,” Andre says of his family’s experience in Midland.
Andre earned his undergraduate degree and MBA from Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU). He works for wealth management firm Tri-Star Trust Bank as a Portfolio Manager, and has been there for seven years.
“I spend most of my time in the investment department. I love what I do. Even throughout college, I never changed my major (finance). I enjoy helping people’s financial dreams come true,” he says.
Andre and his wife have three children: a son age 14 and two daughters, ages 16 and 18. They attend Jefferson Elementary, H.H. Dow High and Central Michigan University (CMU).
Andre says he wants to one day enrich the community in another way: “I hope to write a book some day to encourage others to live their dreams and to let them know that with God, all things are possible.”
