Over the course of his career, Doug Salaway has built a depth of experience that spans the business, legal, tax, and financial planning realms. He grew up in New York City where he had early exposure to Wall Street and took an interest in investing in the markets and personal finance. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, his affinity for business in general led him to obtain his law degree and MBA from the University of Notre Dame.
After cultivating a knowledge base in tax law, executive compensation and benefits, and mergers and acquisitions, Doug became a franchise owner for H&R Block in 2011; he owns and operates 15 offices across the Phoenix metro area today. Doug quickly recognized clients’ need for seamless, tax-centric advice that ties together all aspects of their financial lives. So in 2015, Doug became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional and founded DKS Financial Strategies.
Doug’s experience as an attorney and business owner – as well as a father, husband, and Arizona transplant – allow him to empathize with clients’ diverse circumstances and take a 360-degree view of their financial opportunities. His team of more than 100 financial professionals help assemble and execute a comprehensive, tax-efficient plan.
Doug lives in Scottsdale with his wife, Kim, and their four children. He enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, and watching his children play sports.
