Eric McGinnis – Investment Advisory Representative
Eric joined Pacific Asset Management as an Investment Advisory Representative in January of 2015 after nineteen years in various roles within the finance and employee benefit arena.
Most recently, while working for a large broker dealer and having become disenchanted with an environment laden in commission based investments, excessive fees and the overall short comings of the actively managed world of investing, Eric had his “aha” moment. Convinced there had to be a better way to serve clients in a true fiduciary capacity he submitted his resignation and began his search. Fortunately the search did not last long before finding that better way at Pacific Asset Management.
Born and raised in Maine, and a graduate of the University of Southern Maine, Eric moved to Gig Harbor in 2009 along with his wife Robin and their three children Ryan, Branden and Julia. Having a passion for philanthropy he has worked with several non-profit organizations across the country helping to bring awareness to their respective mission — Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (Portland, Maine), Ally’s House (Norman, OK), The Warrior Foundation (San Diego, CA), CF Hero (Gig Harbor, WA).
