Meet Our Founder


Michael Rahn.


Hi, I’m Michael Rahn and I founded The Sum.  After many years at a large firm, it became apparent to me that the client was not the focus. So, I decided to do something to change that.

On the professional side, I have a business degree in finance from Texas State University. I am also a CFP® practitioner (check it out HERE). With a background at a large financial services firm, I’ve worked on thousands of client plans, and know what it takes to turn plans and ideas into actionable results.

On the personal side, I’m a native Houstonian and my incredible wife Marissa and I live near The Woodlands. Marissa and I are active in our church and are thankful for the opportunities we have to serve others in our community.  We are very adventurous, very passionate about travel and enjoy staying active (outdoors as often as possible). I also love to fly and have been a pilot since 2012.
