About Us


Mike Recser

Co-Owner and Founder

As co-owner of Premier Financial Services of North Carolina, LLC, Mike works closely with clients to customize, implement and manage comprehensive retirement income strategies to help achieve both short- and long-term goals. He is very proud of his loving family, Amy, his wife of more than 16 years and their two beautiful children, Justin & Abbey. Mike is also proud of his strong faith background and continues to be active in his local church as a Eucharistic Minister, Usher & Youth Mission Trip Volunteer. Mike identified the need to form a partnership with Al Barbour this year to provide a Full Service Financial Planning Firm to their clients.



“I hate to see people get off track, so it’s natural for me to reach out and offer my experience, hoping I can help. Fortunately, I am often able to contribute to a better and more productive outcome for them. This is what I love to do.”
