Our History

Growing up in New York City, Doug Salaway had early exposure to life on Wall Street and developed an interest in personal finance and investing. Early in his career, as an attorney, he came to specialize in executive compensation tax law and designing and developing retirement plans for businesses.

In 1999, Doug began working for H&R Block at its corporate headquarters, and over a 12-year corporate career, held executive positions spanning legal, operational, and business development responsibilities. Among his accomplishments, Doug grew and managed a team of more than 30, focused on acquisitions and franchise growth. In 2011, Doug and his wife Kim became H&R Block franchise owners, growing their business to become one of the largest H&R Block franchise operations in the country, with 15 offices and 150 team members serving more than 25,000 clients annually in the Phoenix metro area. 

Doug quickly recognized clients’ need for seamless, tax-centric advice that ties together all aspects of their financial lives. In 2015, pursuing his passion, he became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional and founded DKS Financial Strategies.  DKS has grown from there and in 2022, Doug and Kim sold their tax return preparation business to H&R Block as part of their plan to focus their energy on the financial planning and investment management business.
