I am a 60 year old Sales Executive (currently a VP of Strategic Accounts for a national distribution company) with prior experience as a stockbroker, and currently a non-practicing CFP(R). I have been a member of an investment club since 1987 and also serve as a Director for a Better Investing Chapter in the Chicago area. My primary focus is on dividend growth investing and I am a long-term buy and hold investor who enjoys finding great stocks headquartered in the midwest. I am married with two grown sons and a wonderful wife. I am also a golf enthusiast that strives for a basic level of perfection on the course (yet to be achieved!) as well as with my investments.
