Frank has 37 years of financial planning experience. In 1982, he began his career as a tax director for The Ohio Casualty Insurance Company. In 1987, he was hired by The Manhattan Life Insurance Company as their treasurer. In 1990, Frank joined The Union Central Life Insurance Company and was recognized as their New Agent of the Year. He is a registered representative and an investment advisor of the Ameritas Investment Company, LLC. In 2001, Frank opened the Cincinnati office of Premier Planning Group.
Frank graduated from Miami University (of Ohio) in 1981 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting. In 1996, he received his Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation. The CLU designation is one of the oldest and most respected credentials in financial services, dating back to the late 1920’s. It represents a thorough understanding of a broad array of personal risk management and the designation stresses ethics, professionalism, and in-depth knowledge in the delivery of financial advice.
Frank understands the everyday challenges that his clients face. When Frank’s dad, a Cincinnati Police Officer, died suddenly at a young age, Frank sadly received his first lesson in personal risk and life continuation planning. “Our value proposition at PPG is to make our clients feel safe, secure, organized, confident, and excited about their financial futures—regardless of what might lie ahead.”
Frank lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is the father of Kati and is “Grampy” to her two children, Hayden and Georgia. Frank is an enthusiastic golfer, and he loves to travel domestically and internationally.
