Ted has lived in the Tri-Cities area for over 40 years serving the local community and helping people in financial services for over 20 years. Ted joined the team at Pillar Financial Group in 2023. One of the cornerstones to his partnership is the aligned belief of serving their clients to the highest degree. His focus is on helping individuals and small businesses succeed. Ted was recently awarded the Business Succession Planning degree from the American College for Financial Planning. He is active in many local organizations and has served as a past board member for the Regional Tri-City Chamber of Commerce, the Tri-City Cancer Center, as well as a finance committee for a national foundation. Helping people is the cornerstone of his vision.
In the summer months, Ted and his wife, Adrienne, can be found on the river boating or camping in various places throughout Washington. Ted is an avid fisherman, recently discovering the Alaksan wilderness. During the winter months, you can find them scuba diving in a warm climate or gathering around a nice roaring fire with friends.
