Vice President - Northeast Region

Eric McKenrick holds three of the most coveted designations in the financial planning industry. First, Eric holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™(CFP®) designation, awarded to those professionals who must master nearly 100 integrated financial planning topics, including investment planning, tax planning, retirement planning, estate planning, risk management, insurance and financial management. In addition to completing a comprehensive curriculum approved by the CFP® Board, professionals are required to complete continuing education and approved ethics courses to ensure their competency. Eric also holds the professional designation of a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and is a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®); both designations provide additional education in the fields of behavior finance, neuro-economics, advanced business planning, and additional insurance law coursework.

The title of Retirement Planning Specialist, awarded by AXA Advisors, is based upon receipt of a Certificate in Retirement Planning from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, where Eric was fortunate enough to be able to directly study with professors and scholars who have directly impacted our countries policies on Social Security, Medicare, and various other financial planning topics that impact our client base.

Eric joined AXA Advisors after graduating from the University at Buffalo and being honorably discharged from the US Marine Corps in 2009, where he served overseas as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Operation Enduring Freedom was part of the military operations that took place after the tragic events of 9/11 and is defined by the U.S. combatting terrorism and piracy in the Horn of Africa.

As a Vice President at AXA Advisors, Eric’s role is to lead, mentor and coach financial entrepreneurs so that they may achieve independence and success by positively impacting the lives of those around them. Eric has been integral to the growth of the AXA Advisors branch in Williamsville, NY by growing his own team and perpetuating the values instilled in him through his success in both civilian and military endeavors.

As education is paramount in this field, Eric is pursuing a Masters in Financial Services and one day hopes to be the first PhD at the Buffalo Branch. If you have questions about your financial future, please don’t hesitate to reach out, as he makes himself available through his phone and email, day or night, and would love to introduce our teams’ process.
