Bryan Miranda and Mike Baker lead the group and specialize in working with current and future innovators in the Aerospace and Defense industries. Strategic design and precision, both viewed as vital to the Aerospace industry, are key traits of Bryan and Mike's financial planning process and client success. Bryan and Mike work with several local and national aerospace professionals and have built a solid network providing financial guidance so they can move toward their goals with confidence as well as connect like-minded individuals at various networking events.
Southern California has been an aerospace hub for generations. Growing up here and later attending UCLA, it has been easy for Bryan to have a connection with this industry which began as a child with an uncle who worked at Lockheed Martin and Seal Beach Naval Weapons Stations. His network grew when many of his fellow UCLA alumni took positions at top defense contractors after serving in the US military. Naturally, those relationships have blossomed over the years and have afforded Bryan experience and insight into employee benefits within the industry. His expertise ranges from retirement plans and equity, as well as the transferability not only between companies, but also among members of the military who transition to the private sector. Bryan's priority is to serve these employees with the same integrity and caution with which they serve their country.
Mike was raised in Torrance, California surrounded by neighbors in the Aerospace industry. He received a degree in Finance from San Diego State University and began his career at Tecolote Research, a defense contractor with important relationships with the US Department of Defense and other Federal Government Agencies. Mike's true passion is financial planning and helping people plan for retirement. Due to wanting to stay connected to the Aerospace and Defense industry, he co-founded the GK Aerospace Group. As a former member of and with many friends within the industry, Mike is familiar with the unique financial challenges they face. Mike helps his clients effortlessly navigate employee benefits, company equity, and transitions between companies within the industry. Mike prides himself with providing exceptional service to those who serve and protect our country.
