Your Advisory Team
Fourth Dimension Financial Group is more than meets the eye. While great effort has been made to remain small, client-focused, and high touch, there are multiple income planning and investment management teams across the country, working to ensure our client families receive world-class solutions. These vast resources allow your local advisory team to bring you large firm planning expertise, without large firm bureaucracy and pricing.

After beginning his career at the world headquarters of a Fortune 500 Company based in St Louis, Adam spent the next ten years in various financial services businesses, deepening his knowledge with each experience. Fourth Dimension Financial Group is the culmination of the best of those experiences and seeks to replace much of the complexity that exists in retirement planning with clarity of thinking. As a result, Adam is invited regularly to speak about and teach financial concepts at events and workshops.

Married since 1999, Adam and Carie are on a grand adventure with six daughters. Adam enjoys working out, reading thought-provoking books, and driving sports cars. For 20 years, Adam performed as a drummer in The Ohio Air National Guard Band of the Great Lakes. Drumming has allowed Adam to perform in six countries, on national television, with Miss America, and for The President of The United States.
Dave Bensch is the Director of Operations for Fourth Dimension Financial Group, LLC. Prior to joining Fourth Dimension, he worked as both agent and client liaison for multiple financial services companies and also served as Executive Director of the Oregon Community and Family Coalition, a non-profit organization focused on drug and alcohol prevention.
As part of the Fourth Dimension team, Dave assists in several different aspects of the company. While working closely with the advisors to develop and implement client solutions, he also works to ensure that proper workflows are in place to effectively run the business and keep client satisfaction a top priority.
Dave has been married to his wife Mackenzie since 2007. They have two ferocious felines (Goose & Maverick) with whom they love spending time. Recently, Mackenzie opened Bloom Studio Salon in Perrysburg, where Dave lends his support whenever possible (don’t worry, he isn’t allowed to cut hair).
After graduating from Oak Harbor High School, Dave attended Baldwin-Wallace University, where he earned a degree in Mathematics. While attending Baldwin-Wallace, Dave and his life-long friend Andrew Hemminger traveled to campuses across the country and interviewed some of the most successful coaches in college basketball. Their compilation of these journeys evolved into a co-authored book, Destination Basketball.
When he’s not offering his expertise at Fourth Dimension, or working along with his wife at her salon, Dave enjoys volunteering at Mainstreet Church and several comunity groups, as well as reading, listening to music, and playing all types of sports.
