Ethan attended the University of Nebraska and hails from a small town in the state, where he internalized the common, oft-repeated notion that “a person is only as good as their word.” That simple ethic has guided him through his diverse professional career in insurance and finance, working at Northwestern Mutual Insurance Company, CLS Investments, and Carson Group, where he was Associate Vice-President of Partnership Development, before Joining Altman Advisors in 2021. He is good with people, enjoys interacting with colleagues, and is most passionate about helping clients.

While Ethan mostly obsesses over making Altman Advisors run like a well-oiled machine, he also finds time to appreciate all that Chicago has to offer. He boats on Lake Michigan, bikes along its shore, and plays golf and tennis when he can. He is also an avid sports fan, and enjoys rooting for his new home team, the Chicago Blackhawks.
