CEO, ChFC®, RENNAISANCE FINANCIAL
As founder and CEO of Renaissance Financial, Greg is often asked what he invests in, but he believes it is far more important to have a plan than to overemphasize trends. Since 1994, when Greg teamed up with 16 other financial professionals to create Renaissance Financial, he certainly wanted it to be one of the region’s premier financial service firms. And over the next 25 years it is well positioned to be just that. But what is most fundamental to the success of the firm is a simple and powerful guiding principle: Greg invests in people.
A practitioner of servant-leadership, Greg makes the growth and well-being of others his priority. He has led the firm into the spot as one of the top managing firms within Securian*. He would tell you his success comes from making the right investments—in people.
