Founder: Mike Vitkauskas
After receiving his CFP® designation in 1975, and serving three terms as president of the Oregon IAFP chapters, Mike Vitkauskas computerized his practice in 1979. At the request of many other planners, Vitkauskas formed Money Tree Software in 1981 to market the programs he had developed for his own practice. Mike is retired and has passed the company ownership to Mark Snodgrass.
