At VALIC Ernie was manager of the California Regional Office. His wife Sandy was Office Manager.
During that time Ernie and his team enhanced the lives of thousands of VALIC clients by showing them how to save money for retirement in a tax efficient manner.
Ernie also enhanced the lives of the VALIC representatives that he recruited and trained. The California Regional Office was one of the best of Valic's regions.
The world is better off because Ernie was in it.
