Our Story

A great deal of love, history and meaning can be found in the name of our company and the tree symbol that accompanies it. David Cadarette started in finance 19 years ago and founded CLC using his mother’s initials Cathy Lynn Cadarette who died from cancer at the age of 42, just two weeks after David’s high school graduation.

Today, David works out of offices nestled in the beautiful hardwoods of northern Michigan, helping people prepare for the unexpected. His passion is to “… be like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers." (Psalm 1:3)

Just as trees provide shelter and strength, a sound financial strategy enables you to confidently face whatever comes your way.
