MARK A. WEBER
Mark Weber has spent his professional career working with affluent individuals and successful business owners to help them maximize their wealth and pass it tax-efficiently to their heirs. Before founding the consulting firm of Legacy Planning Advisor, LLC, Mark was the leader of the wealth transfer department of one of the largest privately owned risk management consulting firms in the U.S. His first book The Legacy Spectrum, was published in 2017.
Weber leads the Omaha Chartered Advisor In Philanthropy® Study Group—a group he founded with the support of the Omaha Community Foundation. Since 2012, Mark has guided over 150 professionals in the Omaha area (attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and planned giving officers) through the graduate level coursework necessary to attain the CAP® designation.
In 2021 these advisors reported that, since completing the CAP® program, they have worked with their clients to commit a staggering $9 billion to charitable causes. With Mark’s leadership, the graduates of the Omaha CAP® Study Group program are helping their clients leave legacies that will impact their communities for years to come.
In 2022, The American College of Financial Services inducted Mark into its Alumni Hall of Fame in recognition of the years he's dedicated to helping professional advisors and gift planners earn the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP) designation.
Mark holds bachelor and law degrees from Creighton University and a Master of Science in financial services degree from The American College of Financial Services. He has also earned these designations: Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP).

TESTIMONIALS FOR A SPECTRUM OF LEGACIES
Mark Weber has a passion for making the world a better place with a guidebook for helping people think about their values, their families, their money, and the legacy they want to leave behind. His passion borders on a ministry to help counsel people about the wealth they have and how to manage it responsibly and effectively to meet personal objectives and values, and tackle difficult questions like, ‘How much is enough?’ and how to think about advisors, family meetings, education, and charitable giving as part of one’s legacy. And he does so in a remarkably practical way that is not theoretical and esoteric, like so many books are, but with actionable, down-to-earth, and easy-to-understand-and-implement ideas and guidance.
