Chris Campbell

I first attended Texas A&M University and later graduated from Sam Houston State University with a B.B.A in General Business Administration in 2011.

As a child my parents went above and beyond to work multiple jobs to help create a better life for my sister and me. They always wanted us to have more than what they had growing up.  As I got older, I started to realize the financial impact this had on their future retirement plans. This exposure has helped guide me personally and now professionally into a career as a Financial Services Professional. Previous professions gave me invaluable experience in gaining understanding and compassion for my clients, exceptional customer service, and strategic planning. My goal is to provide a meaningful impact in the lives of individuals, families, and business owners as I help to prepare them for the unexpected and their fiscal future.
