KIRKLAND, Wash. — Thomas J. (Tom) Bartosic, a long-time leader in the long term care planning field, has joined LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), a leading agency specializing in long term care insurance.

Best known for his ability to recruit and develop sales professionals, Bartosic “helped pioneer today’s long term care insurance field,” says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTCFP, “and he works a special magic with sales teams. Tom has a unique ability to inspire people to actualize their potential.”
