Fred was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the small town of Gwynedd Valley. He attended Chestnut Hill Academy K -12, and remains friends with most of his class of 50 students. After high school, he attended the College of Charleston where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. He worked full-time at the Charleston Crab House where he learned at an early age the importance of hard work and customer service.
After graduating with a degree in Corporate Communications, he joined the insurance field where he worked for 2 years, focusing on retirement needs. He quickly realized the value of sound financial planning and that the needs of his clients extended far beyond insurance. He obtained his securities license in order to more effectively fulfill their goals. Through his hard work, Fred was ranked in the top 5% of his peers for 10 straight years.
Throughout his career he trained hundreds of insurance agents & financial professionals (both newly licensed and veteran reps) around needs based selling and advanced planning concepts. He helped launch Good Life IA, which is a top-notch Insurance Marketing Organization (IMO) designed to bring value to high producing financial professionals and insurance producers around the nation.
In today’s ever-changing financial world, he is committed to professional development and has fulfilled the necessary extensive training required to obtain the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ® designation.
When time allows, he can be found with a fishing rod in hand, exploring the waterways of the beautiful place he calls home with his wife Melissa and their three young children.
