About Me

Hi, I'm Blaine Thiederman. When retirement comes, I'm hoping to have saved enough to spend it with my wife, traveling the United States to explore every national park. Buying time until we get started exploring, I'm a mentor to ASU students and volunteer my time to entrepreneurs through the Rocky Mountain Microfinance Institute.

I wanted to start a financial services business that’s different from what’s standard within the industry - a firm where I can truly prioritize the needs of my clients over myself and the firm. I wanted to start a business where clients can expect personal service, unbiased expert advice, guidance, and counsel to help them grow, along with customized solutions. And that firm is Progress Wealth Management.

I have dedicated nearly 10 years of my life towards this career, building expertise in financial planning and wealth management. As a Certified Financial Planner®, I bring a wide range of experience to the relationships I've established with my clients focusing on my ability to provide holistic financial planning, tax planning, and preparation. Prior to starting Progress Wealth management, I served as a leading financial planner at Fisher Investments and Edelman Financial Engines.

About our Firm

Progress Wealth Management was started with a simple purpose: to help clients who want a science and process applied to ensuring efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness in every area of their financial plan.

Our founder, Blaine Thiederman, has worked at a number of different wealth management firms in varying roles and he always felt like the plans and the effort put in by advisors were lacking in one way or another. What bothered him more was the fact that the advisors he worked alongside often knew this but didn’t really care.

This was the driving reason behind starting this firm up.

At Progress Wealth, we take pride in the following:

1. We’re non-commissioned meaning that we aren’t paid by anyone other than you so, like a doctor, you can trust us to always have your best interests at heart.

2. We’re fiduciaries meaning that we’re legally bound to always have your best interests at heart.

3. We’re thorough. We don’t leave any rock unturned as we assist you in your progression towards your financial future.

4. We don’t use cookie-cutter anything. We believe that every financial plan, circumstance, and goal is unique and for that reason, it requires care.
