Chris is the Director of Financial Planning at BentOak Capital where he works with clients to help them clarify and pursue their goals. Among other duties, he oversees the firm’s financial planning process and employer retirement plan initiatives.

Chris believes the role of a financial planner is to help people accurately assess where they are today and confidently plan for where they want to be tomorrow, then to be a knowledgeable guide on the appropriate paths along the way.
