I grew up in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont and graduated from State University of New York Delhi with a degree in Hotel Restaurant management. Over the next 3 years I managed food service operations in Vermont and New York State. In 1978 an opportunity presented itself and I changed careers and joined Garden Way Manufacturing in Troy, NY the maker of the famous Troy-Bilt tiller, acting in various management positions requiring extensive travel throughout the U.S. On December 19, 1984 triplets, 2 boys and a girl came into my life and the ability to travel for long periods of time became impossible. Always having an interest in finances, I entered the insurance business with Prudential Insurance Company on January 14, 1985. I had landed in a business that I truly loved. The ability to support a family and help others along the way was a perfect fit.
As the business expanded, I began looking for ways to bring more services to my clients. In June of 2000, I formed Landmark Financial Services LLC, a financial services firm. Through the years, I have built numerous relationships with attorneys and CPA’s helping my clients navigate the many aspects of financial planning.
In 2003, I realized that my fast growing business and my conviction for excellence brought me to the point where another partner with the same value system and attention to detail was a necessary addition to the firm. I was introduced to a young man, Mike Castillo and the firm of Landmark Financial Services grew in its commitment and services to its clients.
I enjoy my time with the Ferrisburgh Volunteer Fire Department aiding my community when residents are most vulnerable. I enjoy traveling, antiquing and getting away on my annual pilgrimage to deer camp enjoying time with family and friends.
I live with my wife Lynn in the City of Vergennes. Our free time is spent spoiling our growing clan of grandchildren.
