Dominic Garcia

Wealth Manager

After graduating from Oakland University with a Master's Degree in Finance, Dominic began his career with a concentration on comprehensive wealth management.  He furthered his education at Walsh College by completing courses in risk management, investment analysis, income tax, estate planning, and retirement planning. 

He has achieved the designations of Financial Planning Specialist and Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor™ through the College for Financial Planning. In addition, he has completed the education requirement for the CFP®.  And in 2023, he was presented with his ninth Five Star Wealth Manager Award as announced in Hour Detroit, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes magazine.

The creation of Rochester Wealth Strategies came from a desire to build a culture that was truly dedicated to clients and the community. Though grateful for the 11 years he spent as a Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager for his previous firm, Dominic wanted to establish a client experience that was more personalized and one that differentiated itself from the industry. Today, he works side-by-side with his clients to help them create roadmaps for retirement, in addition to providing income and legacy planning thereafter.

The opportunity to live and work in Rochester has created a passion towards supporting the local community.  Dominic is an active member of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the Rochester Downtown Development Authority.  His local involvement continues as he taught Chess at the Rochester OPC (Senior Center) and as a parishioner of St. Irenaeus Catholic Church. 

On a personal level, Dominic is married with four children.  During his free time, he loves teaching his children any new hobby; especially fishing, skiing, and basketball.  Whether he is biking on the Paint Creek Trail, hanging out in the Rochester Municipal Park, eating at Rochester Mills, or trying to fit in play structures at Rochester Play, you will usually find him around town with his family.
