Meet Our Team

Art Ortman

Investment Advisor Representative

aortman@sagepointadvisor.com

Art brings nearly 30 years of experience and a desire to align your goals and values with your financial plans. He holds two bachelor's degrees and two master's degrees and is extremely goal driven. One of the goals Art has achieved is sharing his knowledge for helping clients by mentoring other advisors within the office. 

On the docket this year? Daily exercise and protein shakes, weekly chats with his grandsons, and spending time in God's word, to name a few. Art is wild about staying in peak condition so he can compete in cycle racing and power walking each year at the Idaho Senior Games. Art qualified to participate in the National Senior Games in Florida this May, and the Huntsman International Senior Games in October. 


Michael Mayer

Investment Advisor Representative

mmayer@sagepointadvisor.com

With more than 20 years in the financial industry, Michael has found that it often takes securities, insurance, and alternative investments* to make a financial plan work, and he strongly believes that given the appropriate level of advice, you should call your own shots as your plan for retirement. Michael is an independent advisor representative, allowing him the freedom and diversity of choice to customize your financial plan without being tied to any one carrier. 

In his free time, he coaches football for his son's team, travels, and enjoys most anything outside in this beautiful state we call home. Interestingly enough, Michael was born in Germany and raised in the U.S. Army before joining it himself after high school graduation.
