As one of the three Owner/Managing Members, he loves helping people find the potential within their unique circumstances. Ultimately, his goal is to help them both make smart money and life decisions while partnering with them to help in achieving their goals.
Before joining the firm in 2013 as Vice President of Operations. George was a client of the firm and worked in operations and sales for several large corporations. Being a client first George understands the TFG Advisers philosophy and takes pride in being part of a process that helps clients understand how they can prioritize and attain their goals. He especially enjoys working with people who are enthusiastic about securing their future. That enthusiasm, he has found, makes the financial planning process an exciting adventure.

Outside of work, he enjoys the challenge of a good home rehabilitation project and sharing his love of Up-North Michigan summers and North Carolina mountain sunsets with his family and friends.
