“The time for a business man to borrow money, if ever, is when he does not need it.”
Ron lives, works, and plays in the Gem State of Idaho with his wife, Sara, four children and golden retriever named Ethel (that’s another story).
Ron spent three decades in management and executive management at a Fortune 50 company prior to starting GSIA in 2010. He also served in several financial and investment committee roles for non-profit organizations.
His love of markets and investing began at age 18 when he purchased his first stock, Navistar (formerly International Harvester).
Initially trained as an engineer, Ron couples an analytical approach with a deep interest and understanding of the behavioral factors involved with people and their money.
Ron believes the fiduciary standard is a solemn duty. This is a core belief that led to founding the firm as an Independent Registered Investment Advisory. He loves helping and educating family and individual clients around using money to achieve peace of mind and non-profits to support their mission.
Ron holds a B.S. and M.S. degree from New York University and a certificate in Financial Planning from Texas A&M University.
When not talking finance and investing with clients and colleagues, Ron might be found with a fly rod, golf club, or some woodworking equipment in hand (never at the same time).
