Rod Crandall, Insurance Consultant
Rod has collaborated with over 200 financial advisors to help them successfully integrate appropriate, insurance-based planning into their practices.

Rod has a thorough understanding of how to effectively collaborate with other professionals and centers of influence to better serve clients. He believes our best clients have multiple needs and they should not be addressed in a vacuum. Clients and advisors work with Rod because he follows the “platinum rule” in everything he does - "To the extent I can understand and meet your needs, mine will be fulfilled."
