Professional Experience

Ed's clientele includes, families, clergy, business owners, highly compensated professionals and just about every honorable profession. The common thread is that they are thinking, caring and achievement-oriented people that recognize they can accomplish more on purpose than by accident.

Ed also assists small businesses and not for profits attract and retain employees; owners plan for succession or disposition of their businesses upon retirement, death or disability; and companies reduce exposure to the loss of time and money when the unexpected occurs -- by giving owners and executives more control through the careful selection and coordination of employee and executive benefits.

Financial planning is Ed's passion. It is also his second career.

Prior to changing careers, Ed benefited from more than twenty years of experience in management consulting, business development and management with companies that included IBM, Coopers & Lybrand (now Pricewaterhouse Coopers), McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing), Oracle and regional consulting firms.

Ed has written columns on financial topics for the regional quarterly, P.G. Suite Magazine. He has also been quoted in colums and articles in the Washington Post, Doctor's Quarterly and Black Enterprise Magazine.
