Eric is the business development director at EnVision Financial Group. His primary function is to connect and share with individuals, businesses and organizations the process that EnVision uses to help others succeed at attaining their retirement planning and financial goals.
Prior to EnVision Financial Group, Eric spent 25 years in the gas & welding supply industry as an owner/operator of GTS Welco, an independent gas company. His focus was client service, but he was also responsible for all operational aspects of the business. He and his partner sold their business in 2014 to Praxair. Eric continued to work for the company, helping employees and customers through the transition until 2016 when he retired.
