Meet With Me


Chad’s passion for helping everyone from young people just beginning to plan for their future to experienced investors ready to preserve their assets is what made HBW a great place to call home. As an Investment Adviser Representative with HBW, he enjoys teaching clients about all areas of personal finance ranging from how to write a budget, to planning for retirement using his PII approach; Plan, Insure, Invest.

One of his top priorities is to not only provide options that are suitable to each client and their comfort level, but to also ensure the client understands the investment. This all helps to align with the client’s life goals and is an important basis as a fiduciary. Chad has also spread knowledge outside of work by coordinating Financial Peace University, speaking to young people from his college’s Business Club, and having inspirational conversations about money with those who need it most.


Beyond years of management experience across varying fields, Chad has earned numerous degrees in Business Administration, Natural Science with a focus on Mathematics, Behavioral Science and Economics. Aside from traditional higher education in his field, Chad has studied Mathematics in other fields, Engineering, Physics, Automotive Repair, Fire Science and Accounting and Business Law.
