Notable and Newsworthy: VIP Profiles Issue 18

This week marks the beginning of the summer issues of the VIP Profiles. We are both settled into our respective living quarters (Joseph in Geneseo, Ben in Henrietta) and ready to start working hard. We hope you enjoy the stellar line-up of VIPs we have ready to feature in the coming months.

We proudly kick the festivities off with a financial planner and new, Christopher Opper, and our first CEO, Chris McVicker of the Flanders Group. Also we bring the third segment of Ben's Sophomore Suite. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Life and Times of JWN


Over the past week I was at home with my mother in Kirkwood, New York. Celebrating Mother's Day in style, I took her out to eat at Red Lobster (one of her favorite places to dine) on Thursday evening. We prefer to do the Mother's Day outing later in the week to avoid the rush.

During the week, I taught a bunch of little hooligans in a variety of grade levels at the Windsor Central School District, my alma mater. I often substitute teach when I am home because I enjoy working with the kids and keeping up on the old stomping grounds. Also, I am the Treasurer of the Windsor Alumni Association, so it gives me a chance to stay abreast of new developments in the district.

In a one day hiatus from lovely Kirkwood, I traveled back to Geneseo for Ben and my graduation from the Business Ownership Training Course. This is a program sponsored by the Alliance for Business Growth of Livingston and Wyoming Counties. It was a twelve week comprehensive entrepreneurship course which was a pleasure to be a part of.

Work in the Risk Management Group at Manning and Napier starts this coming week, so I will be staying on my toes and learning from some great financial professionals. I am looking forward to my "first" experience in the financial world.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments from "the VIP guys," as a recent correspondence referred to Ben and I.

Always my best... ~ Joseph
