If you're like most Publix Associates we've worked with, you've probably spent a lot of time thinking about life after Publix.  But have you actually spent time planning for the day you leave the store (or warehouse) for the last time? At some point in the future, Publix will hand the responsibility over to you for your retirement plans, health care, income, etc., and on that day you will need to make one of the largest financial decisions you'll ever make. Fortunately we're here to help. Our knowledge and experience can help you navigate through the critical planning decisions while helping you understand how they apply to you.

My own career with Publix started in 1979, and after retiring in 1999, I began my career in financial planning. 

When I retired, the ESOP and Profit Sharing were still separate programs. And after beginning the distribution process with no experience or professional guidance at the time, I soon realized how confusing it can be.

Because of this experience, almost immediately after taking my own distribution I began helping other Publix Associates plan for their life after Publix, and 2 decades later, I'm still passionate about helping people like you avoid the mistakes I made, and still see people making today.

As a result, over the last 20+ years, I've helped dozens of current and former Publix Associates through a variety of financial challenges. And today, because of the knowledge and experience I've acquired since then, over 60 percent of my clients are from Publix.

Characteristics that define a financial advisor.

As a Publix Associate, I know choosing a financial advisor can be very confusing and there's no shortage of firms throughout the South actively seeking your business. I believe at least part of that confusion is because many in my industry have adopted the title "financial advisor".  A Financial Advisor is registered to offer advisory services through a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) which is registered with the SEC.

According to 

"a true financial advisor should be a well-educated, credentialed, experienced, financial professional who works on behalf of his clients, as opposed to serving the interests of a financial institution". "Generally, a financial advisor is an independent practitioner who operates in a fiduciary capacity in which a client’s interests come before their own".

With that in mind, I am:

  • Credentialed CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional (see the CFP® section for more details)
  • Independent - we have no quotas, no proprietary products and we're investment product neutral
  • Planning focused - we offer true financial planning for a fee.
  • Process driven - we use a clearly defined process that has helped Publix Associates for over 2 decades.

I offer:

  • Holistic, fee based advice - I have the training and experience to look at your total financial picture and understand how all the pieces fit together.
  • Open architecture - the ability to provide all types of product solutions from thousands of providers.
  • Flight time - I've spent 1000's of hours over the last 20+ years helping Publix Associates retire.
  • I've been through the process - I understand Publix' paperwork, distribution process and potential mistakes
  • I understand you - the Publix culture, the history you have with the company, and how important your retirement is to you.


You have multiple choices for your retirement advice, but because of my experience and my time at Publix, I know the challenges you face, and how to help you successfully navigate them.

Doesn't it make sense to have someone with this type of knowledge and experience working for you!
