He works with one of the finest teams of financial professionals in the industry, serving hundreds of high net worth families, businesses and institutions in Texas and around the world.

    Growing up outside of Chicago, Jeff was first introduced to the world of finance in middle school when his industrial arts teacher taught him about the power of stock ownership. This interest inspired Jeff to pursue a profession in financial services. He earned his B.S. degree in Finance from Northern Illinois University in 1990 and became a Financial Advisor at Gruntal & Co. in 1992.

    Jeff’s abilities to inspire others was soon recognized as one of his strengths. He was promoted to Sales Manager at Gruntal in 1996, which led to other management opportunities at A.G.

    Jeff’s passion for leading teams and helping clients achieve their financial goals is equaled only by his dedication to his family and community.
