ACP is pleased to welcome Andrew Komarow, (CFP™) as its newest board member. Andrew is the Founder of Planning Across the Spectrum, a financial services agency specializing in helping any self-advocating client or families with autism and intellectual disabilities.
Andrew has been a passionate advocate for autism awareness in his community and is widely regarded for his work as a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP™). He has always worked toward helping his clients gain financial security now and for their future.
Andrew understands the difficulty and stigma that many individuals with special needs face. Having received his Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis as an adult, many questions about the struggles he had growing up, and as a young adult, were answered. Through this experience, Andrew knew that he wanted to do something to work with the special needs community to provide answers and security in the financial world. He took time to educate himself in everything he could to help this underserved community and now dedicates himself to it.
Andrew is active with Autism Services & Resources Connecticut as a member of their board. Andrew also sits on the boards for The American College Alumni and the FOCUS Center for Autism. He was appointed by the Connecticut house of representatives to their Autism Spectrum Disorders Advisory Council and frequently advocates for those with Autism and other Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Andrew is a frequent guest speaker on his own experiences or on various financial and insurance planning topics.
