Steve Rotello, CFP®
Managing Principal, Denver
“You cannot feel gratitude and be anxious at the same time.” — Dr. William St. Cyr
As the Managing Principal of Mosaic’s Denver office, Steve is in charge of client strategy and planning. His 17 years of experience in financial planning, generational planning, investment strategy and portfolio implementation provide clients with advice from someone who has seen both good and bad markets. Steve joined the Mosaic team after over 9 years at UBS, and 8 years at A.G. Edwards and Sons. However, he began his career as a teacher at Desmet High School. The opportunity to do something significant for some wonderful people led Steve to enter wealth management, and later brought him to Mosaic. Joining the Mosaic team is very meaningful to Steve because Scott Highmark and he have shared a friendship and ideas for 17 years.
Steve’s favorite part of working at Mosaic is being surrounded by folks that are deeply committed to elevating the lives of clients and colleagues alike. He feels that the best experiences of his life have come from working on teams, and that the best advice comes from teamwork, so Steve is incredibly excited to be a part of the Mosaic family. Steve is inspired each day knowing that his clients are counting on him to help achieve their lasting and life-changing goals.
Steve graduated from University of Colorado-Boulder with a Bachelor’s in Accounting, and later received his MBA from Saint Louis University. He is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. When Steve is not working, he most enjoys spending time with his wife and three children doing just about anything — hiking, fishing, golfing, biking, or playing board games rank among their favorite activities! Steve is also a big fan of basketball. He is a volunteer basketball coach at Regis Jesuit High School. Steve has been part of four Final Fours and two state championships, and has been a mentor to some of the top student-athletes in St. Louis and Denver.
