The Rose Street story begins decades before our doors ever opened for the first time. In 1940, Robert Scott, an insurance agent with Connecticut Mutual, sold life insurance policies to a husband and wife that would make an impact on their family still to this day.
In 1948, the unexpected and untimely death of the husband resulted in a claim on the insurance policy purchased only eight years prior. The proceeds from this policy helped his wife raise their son and pay for his college education. The young man, being inspired by his parents’ wisdom in purchasing the life insurance policy, committed his career to the business and perfected his craft under the wings of some of the best in the industry.
This young man is Rose Street Advisors’ founder, Principal and CEO Emeritus, Erwin “Butch” Doerschler.
Doerschler first joined the Scott Agency after graduating from Western Michigan University and then, in 1987 under the name of Scott, Doerschler, Messner & Gauntlett (SDMG), he and his partners built a talented team focused on planning for the future to impact the lives of others who may end up finding themselves in an unexpected situation. Throughout a series of mergers and buy-outs, they operated within companies like First of America, National City Bank and PNC.
The dedicated advisors at Rose Street are passionate about taking care of the client in both traditional and non-traditional ways.

After understanding the challenges, opportunities and risks with each individual client, the team strategizes together and tailors a plan to fit their needs.
