My love for financial management began at an early age after winning the stock-picking contest in high school.  I couple this passion with my financial planning and investment management experiences at Bell Labs, AT&T, and Edward Jones to help individuals simplify and improve their financial lives.

Eric J. Linger is an active member of the prestigious organization National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA).   Membership requires extensive experience, submission of a comprehensive financial plan for peer review, and that he is a fiduciary.   Mr. Linger puts this in writing for each client that he is a fiduciary and always works in their best interest.

On a personal note, I am an avid photographer, tennis player, runner, and ham radio operator (K2GU).  I love animals and have one wife, two kids, and two cats.
