About Ken
Kenneth Bottari joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in December 2013, following a 27-year career in the United States Air Force, where he attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Kenneth understands the challenges and opportunities associated with life in the military and is committed to helping service members and their families get their financial lives squared away.

Kenneth has a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Science, Production and Operations from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. He holds Series 7 and 66 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in NM, TX, FL, IL, OH, AZ, CO and ID.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Kenneth serves as a personal financial coach to clients, continually reinforcing positive financial behaviors. His thorough knowledge of military pay and benefits enables him to advise clients on how to navigate the Blended Retirement System, properly allocate their contributions to the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and take full advantage of other benefits. Kenneth will work with you to establish specific, meaningful goals that are consistent with your values and then develop a personalized financial plan to guide your pursuit of those goals.

Active in his community, Kenneth is a member of Hispano Chamber of Commerce, Clovis Chamber of Commerce and NAIFA.

In his free time, Kenneth enjoys hiking and spending time with family.

Today, more than 500 First Command Financial Advisors across the country and abroad, many of whom also served, are committed to the company’s Mission of “Coaching those who serve in their pursuit of financial security.”
