Richard (Rich) offers access to the investment resources of Merrill and banking convenience of Bank of America to help clients address the various aspects of their financial lives. Rich's passion for working with small business owners, like his parents, led to him to begin his career in financial services in 2008. His business-mindedness enables him to comfortably guide sophisticated clients through all phases of wealth management. In addition to his considerable experience in the financial services industry, Rich is an analyitical problem solver with strong research and communication skills. He leverages these skills to help his clients effectively navigate volatile markets while planning for retirement or major life events. Rich understands his clients confront few more important decisions than where and how they invest. It is because of this understanding that Rich takes such great care to never expose his clients to unnecessary risks.
Rich also maintains his licenses as a residential and commercial mortgage loan originator and REALTOR®, allowing him to give his clients unique insights and guide them in ways most financial advisors cannot.
Prior to beginning his career in financial services, Rich earned his Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) as well as his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) from Western Michigan University's Haworth College of Busines and School of Communication, respectively.
Rich resides in Grosse Pointe Farms with his wife, Andreana (Ana), and daughter Isla. In their spare time they enjoy trying new restaurants, exploring Metro Detroit, and attending community events.
