The Olympic moto, “Faster, Higher, Stronger”, has long been Cortino's personal mantra. First it was in the world of sport as an elite triathlete and then as a coach of endurance athletes. Cortino relocated to Idaho with his family in 2012 and deployed his ideology of coaching and teaching into the world of financial planning. Cortino works with his clients to implement plans with strong financial foundations. He believes that every individual and business owner should have the opportunity to maximize their hard-earned dollars, while utilizing tax-advantageous strategies to their benefit.
Cortino believes strongly in faith, family, education, fitness, and in giving back to others who are in need. He proudly helped rescue the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to a sound financial footing and was instrumental in the creation of the non-profit arm of that organization, The Idaho Hispanic Foundation. The foundation's mission is to pursue charitable and community development initiatives such as the Idaho Women's Business Development Center. Cortino is also an avid volunteer in his church and at his children's school, and helps organize and direct annual community cycling events.
Cortino can often be found outdoors riding bikes, running, hiking, or gardening. He loves to read, laugh, and travel with his beautiful wife and three children. His family is the underlying reason he seeks to establish and maintain long-term relationships with his clients – so that he can teach by example the importance of building a business that places his client's needs first.
