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 married to his beautiful wife, Wesley and is the proud father of his son, Crew. One of Eric’s many joys in life are date nights with Wesley. He also shares a passion for sports with Crew, both playing and watching. Eric enjoys coaching Crew’s sports teams, with Wesley being their biggest fan in the stands. When not on a court or ball field, Eric enjoys spending time relaxing at home with family by watching movies, playing board games, and going on walks or bike rides. As a family, they also enjoy being adventurous, spending time outdoors and traveling. Eric’s faith is also a major part of his life, and he, Wesley and Crew are active members at Connection Pointe Christian Church.
