What’s your background? I have been in the financial services industry since 2001 with extensive experience both as an advisor and a Supervisory Principal. As Supervisory Principal, I managed a large group of financial advisors as part of a bank investment program for eight years. Prior to becoming a financial advisor, George served for six years in the Orlando Regional Healthcare System in the greater Orlando area including two years as Assisted Living Facility Administrator.

What degrees do you hold? I have a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida (1989) and an M.S. in Health Services Management from Webster University (1995).

Win any awards? I have been awarded many honors as a top producer, management leader, and service leader. While the awards are great, the award I covet most is the satisfaction of helping clients achieve their personal goals and fulfilling their purpose.

What do you do for fun? I enjoy being in the outdoors, whether I’m camouflaged in the woods or cruising the pristine waters of the Florida coast. Occasionally you can find me on the golf course…or in the rough.

Tell us about your family: I have been married to Marci since 1995 and we have 3 beautiful children; Travis, Ethan, and Lacie. The oldest member of the family is our 14-year-old Catahoula mix dog, Nellie.

What charities do you support?  Big Bend Hospice, Hunger Fight, TMH Tee Off for Tots, Semper Fi Fund,  Independence Landing, Tallahassee Artist Series, and Young Life.
