Charles graduated from the University of Dayton with a BA degree in business in 1978 with a minor in theatre. He began his career at Merrill Lynch in 1979 and is now in his 39th year. As a Vice President and Wealth Management Advisor, Charles has come to understand the importance of working with clients to help them truly identify their life goals. He takes the time to listen, ask questions and empathize in order to truly understand what is important to each client
After time spent identifying each client’s priorities for their lives, he employs a holistic approach to help clients realize each goal. Charles works closely with his clients, other trusted advisors and Merrill Lynch specialists to deliver effective, consistent advice. In addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, He helps clients pursue their objectives by building and managing strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill Lynch model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies.

He believes that wealth should be managed to help achieve outcomes that are personally meaningful to each client
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
As Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
Getting to know you is our primary goal.
Drawing from our experience and the best thinking of Merrill, we will build a strategy that reflects your unique needs, priorities and financial situation.
We will work to help you stay on track, regardless of what the markets are doing.
