Mike’s passion is helping businesses, communities and families grow. This led him to form Adamek Financial, offering financial planning, corporate insurance strategies and group employee benefits. Mike’s entrepreneurial spirit was instilled in him by his parents who owned and operated a local family business that started in 1958 and continues today.
Mike’s success has earned him a ‘Lifetime and Top of the Table’ Member of Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premier Association of Financial Professionals. MDRT members demonstrate exceptional professional knowledge, strict ethical conduct and outstanding client service. MDRT membership is recognized internationally as the standard of excellence in the life insurance and financial services business.
After more than 28 years in business, Mike has grown Adamek Financial to extend across Canada and Northwest Territories. His principal strength is his commitment to community growth. He has always been a leader and contributor. After two years serving as President for the West Shore Chamber of Commerce, Mike went on to be the founding Chairperson for the West Shore Economic Development Association. Since the 1990’s Mike’s work in Economic Development has helped to bring a growth surge of infrastructure, amenities, housing and jobs to the City of Langford and the surrounding West Shore communities.
Mike has instilled his core value of “people must grow” in every facet of his work and personal life; with his competitive advantage being his commitment to service excellence.
With over three decades of hands-on experience of building a team-based company with strong community ties, Mike looks forward to sharing his entrepreneurial recipes with you.
