Christopher R. Plagge


Tax Growth Leader / Member Owner

My family is the most important thing in my life. I cherish each and every moment with them. Life is short, so I always make an effort to really get to know my friends and co-workers. I believe the same principle applies with clients, in that the best way to help them is to know them.
