Mo Howard, WVU graduate and CEO of Ultegra Financial Partners, founded the financial services company in 2012 after a decade of experience working in the finance industry. Howard, a cum laude graduate of West Virginia University, possesses an MBA in Finance and Financial Management Strategies and has leaned on both his education and experience in founding the company for which he now serves as CEO and Managing Principal.
As an undergraduate, Mr. Howard was able to balance a heavy class load with participation in collegiate athletics. Mo Howard, West Virginia University football player, was just as successful as Mo Howard, West Virginia University student while on the Morgantown, West Virginia campus. The time spent at WVU was very important to Mr. Howard, as it taught him the value of proper time management and how to strike a balance between multiple pursuits that carry significant demands in terms of both time and energy.
