Mike Paikos

Investment Program Manager / LPL Financial Advisor

Mike joined the Black Hills Investment Services team as the Investment Services Manager and an LPL Financial Advisor in 2002 after moving from San Francisco. As a client-centered advisor, he creates and provides investment strategies that help pursue his clients’ happiness and financial independence. Before joining our team, Mike worked as a Senior Retirement Specialist at Charles Schwab and a Sales Associate at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.


Mike grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from Saint Mary’s College of California with a B.S. in Business Administration and a minor in Economics. When he wasn’t working, he wined, dined, and enjoyed seeing live music. One fortunate evening in San Francisco led him to meet his wife, who convinced him that moving to Rapid City, SD, was a great idea. As a result, he has lived and raised his family in the Black Hills ever since. Mike has two beautiful children, Olivia and Nicholas, who keep him incredibly busy when he’s not at work.
