Some people work for a paycheck. David Pintaric works because it’s his passion.
It might sound cliché, but it’s true. He’s set himself up to the point where he doesn’t have to work. He does it because he’s not ready to stop doing what he truly loves – helping people reach their financial goals.
His father started as a financial planner in 1961, and David was born in 1962. So, he has been around the profession of money management literally his entire life. His experience isn’t just about his profession. It’s what has shaped him into who he is today.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1985 from Youngstown State University, David followed in his father’s footsteps by joining the family business, WRP Investments, in 1986. He is now a 35-year veteran of the investment industry.
He started in the industry by developing a retail practice that served individual and corporate clients in retirement planning, investment selection, and insurance needs.
He then served WRP representatives working his way through the operations and marketing divisions of the broker dealer, eventually becoming President and CEO. The firm was also named Broker-Dealer of the Year in 2012 by Investment Advisor Magazine. In his time with the firm, he increased its value and eventually sold it for 11 times its earnings.
David also races cars professionally, currently in the Trans Am Series. He was the 2013 Rookie of the Year and has 11 career podium finishes, including winning the 2018 race at Daytona International Speedway. He is also a 5-time amateur National Champion, the most recent when he won the SCCA National Championship at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in October 2017. So yeah, David knows a thing or two about managing risk. Which comes in handy when you’re talking investments and people’s financial futures.
He and his wife, Janet, have been married for 33 years. Their daughter, Rachael, has followed the family tradition in the investment industry by obtaining her securities license in 2015.
