Meet Your Team
Length of Employment at Rogue: 8 years
Hometown: Pukekohe, New Zealand
About Me: I have been married for twenty years to my wife, Brigette, and we have two children. We live in Eagle Point. I am a Lay Minister at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Jacksonville. I learned to play Ice Hockey a few years ago. I play on the adult league and also help coach my son’s team. I enjoy going with my daughter to her 4H dog Club and helping her with our rambunctious 3 year old Samoyed. I am an avid vegetable gardener and spend many weekend days in my backyard. I love to read fiction and non-fiction, particularly history.
What is the best part about working at Rogue?
I love the people I work with at Rogue. In particular, I really appreciate the people on my team. I know that each member of my team is committed to doing the right thing and helping our members.
What drew you to Rogue originally? And how has Rogue changed since?
When I first came to Rogue, I truly loved that we really believed in doing the right thing for our members which is even more true today. I have seen this so many times in action over the years. This doesn’t mean that we don’t make mistakes, but I know that our leadership always works hard to do the right thing. The knowledge that we are working as part of an organization that tries to do the right things for the right reasons is why I came back after leaving for a year in 2010 and why I am still here today.
What are your hopes for the financial industry?
Speaking for the Investment Industry, I would say that I would hope that we could move back to a time when advisors had more freedom to work with clients. I would like to see a happy medium between regulation and client focus. Many firms will not take clients with less than $250,000 or even $500,000 in investable assets. This is a huge disservice to many. Fortunately, Rogue Investment Services** has been able to partner with Cetera Investment Services as our Broker-Dealer and we are able to work with anyone, regardless of asset size, who has demonstrated a history of saving and/or investing!
