Meet Eric

 

Eric attended Taylor University (2002-2006) and graduated Cum Laude with a degree in business administration. After college, he first worked for MassMutual Financial Group before partnering with his father, Steve, and subsequently achieving his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification. He currently holds series 7 & 66 registrations in addition to his health, variable, and life insurance licenses.

Much of Eric’s passion for excellence was instilled in him through the game of basketball. He earned a full-ride athletic scholarship, resulting in numerous accolades, including Third All-Time leading scorer in Taylor history, Conference Player of the Year in the MCC (sophomore and senior year), 3-Time All-American, and first player in Taylor history to be named 1st team All-American. His leadership both on and off the court helped his team make four consecutive National Tournament appearances. Taylor University honored these accomplishments by inducting Eric into their Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.

Eric is the proud father of his son, Crew. They share a love of sports, both playing and watching, and Eric enjoys coaching Crew’s sports teams. When they aren’t on a court or ball field,  Eric enjoys relaxing at home by watching movies, playing board games and going on bike rides. Eric’s faith is also a major part of his life, and he is an active member at Connection Pointe Christian Church.
