Over 20 years ago, Mike made the decision to become an investment advisor - helping individuals, families, business owners, and retirees successfully navigate today’s complex financial world. The prompting and passion that drove that choice are still the same today. With a love for numbers, reading, educating, investment planning, and most of all, building relationships with the people he serves, Mike found his niche. Mike's dedication and commitment inspire and motivate the team he has built while earning him numerous awards and accolades for client service and operational excellence over the years.
There are patterns of success and failure that become evident when you read market-related research reports, investing outlook and money managers for weeks, months, quarters, and years on end as Mike has! He has learned many painful lessons in his two decades of managing his own and other people’s money and feels very strongly about protecting his clients from experiencing these same lessons the hard way.
Throughout his career, Mike has been active in his community by offering his expertise on various boards and participating in charity endeavours. He is married to Wendy and has 3 amazing children. When he is not advising his clients, Mike enjoys such diverse activities as mountain biking, hockey, reading, cooking and entertaining family & friends. He loves discussing current events, especially over a glass of wine and a delicious meal.
Mike believes there is no secret to success, but it's the result of hard work, good preparation and learning from failure. He would love to put his conscientiousness and years of experience to work for you.

As Branch Administrator, Brian carries much of the ongoing responsibility for overseeing the administration of our office. With his background in finance, strong analytical skills, and passion for data management, Brian joined our team in 2011 focussing on offering consolidated client reports – simplifying and bringing a clearer, personalized big picture quarterly to each client.
Brian enjoys investing in our clients through regular communication and detailed portfolio reporting, while serving alongside his co-workers and working as a team. He believes in Mike’s investment philosophy and approach with clients - establishing relationships that are long-term, built on trust and transparency. Our clients know that if they have questions about their accounts, taxation, or paperwork in general, Brian is here to provide assistance.
In his spare time Brian loves the challenge and adventure of rock climbing and is a certified ACMG climbing instructor.

After 25 years in various leadership and administrative capacities, Susan joined the Hayhoe Team on a part-time basis to serve people, plan events, and use her creativity and love for organization. Over the past 10 years, Susan's marketing assistant role has expanded to include management of client relations, connecting with individuals and families she has come to know on a regular basis - listening and showing hospitality with a warm welcome when they come in to the office. Because we are a small independent firm, we have the unique opportunity to be more personally connected to our clients and celebrate their lives – an approach that makes us unique and makes Susan excited about the role she is able to play on the team.
In her spare time, Susan enjoys planning celebrations for family and friends, cooking, organizing, entertaining, reading biographies, gardening, and spending time with her family and friends.
Wendy joined ‘The Hayhoe Team’ in 2013 on a part-time basis to assist with our marketing activities. Her outgoing personality, fresh perspective, and ability to envision new avenues for us to explore have been a great asset to the team. As Mike’s wife, Wendy enjoys being able to support him and stand behind his integrity in practical ways as he builds his practice. A mother of three, and a part-time resource teacher, when not at the office or in the classroom, Wendy enjoys exercising, spending time with her family and friends, reading, baking and healthy cooking.
