While he did not feel like he could join WFG Transamerica at the time, Gideon knew that if his uncle could get his wife on board, he would eventually convince him, too.

NAIFA Welcomes New Member Henry Angelucci

By NAIFA Membership on 9/16/20 9:11 AM

Henry Angelucci is an advisor at Knights of Columbus Insurance and a new NAIFA member.

Before starting his career in the financial services industry, Angelucci worked as a union electrician. After working for the same company for 10 years, he found himself looking for a less physically demanding job. While he was an active member of the Knights of Columbus, he had never considered a career with the company. One day he came across a flyer in the mail advertising a job opportunity. Angelucci took this as a sign and decided to give it a try. After all, he had always been interested in investments and personal financial planning because of his father’s influence.

NAIFA Welcomes New Member Morgan Fimpel

By NAIFA Membership on 9/9/20 5:06 PM

Morgan Fimpel is an Account Manager for Summit Financial Group and a new NAIFA member.

After graduating from Central Baptist College with a Bachelor of Science in General Studies and a Recreational Leadership minor, she moved to Dallas, TX. She and her fiancé planned to settle in the area eventually, so Fimpel began applying to open positions that somewhat aligned with her past work experiences. Not long into her search, she was interviewed for a position at Summit and offered the job. At the time, she knew this would be an incredible growth opportunity, but little did she know that this would turn into a career she would fall completely in love with. She says she was attracted to this industry because, “I knew there was the potential of this job turning into a career, and I love helping people. Now that I’m actually in it, I realize it’s 100% where I want to be, and I’m so glad I decided to give it a try!”
