Rod Meyer grew up on a small farm in Mitchell County, Iowa with four brothers and a sister. He graduated from Iowa State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business, and he was a proud member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. He started his career in Austin, Minnesota as an agricultural loan officer with Wells Fargo Bank. In 1985 Rod moved to Mankato, Minnesota and was a credit analyst for the next seven years with ConAgra Foods.
Rod started his professional investment career in Mankato with Piper Jaffray and Hopwood in 1992. In 2003 he founded his own independent practice, which is still in existence today under the name of Meyer & Norland Financial Group, LLC. Honesty and integrity are the fundamental values on which the firm was founded and which still drive the business today.
Rod and his wife Kendall are the proud parents of two children. Their daughter Leslie is an optometrist on the Navajo Reservation in Ship Rock, New Mexico; their son Evan recently joined Rod's practice as Office Manager and Partner.
Rod feels blessed to be employed by 100 wonderful families under a relationship where we aspire to provide outstanding value-added service with transparency of costs and objectivity in investment decisions.
