Frank is the Founder and President of Banyan Asset Management, Inc.  He was raised in Grosse Pointe, Michigan and began his professional career in the automotive industry as an engineer.  While engineering was interesting to Frank, investing had always been his passion.  Banyan Asset Management, Inc. was created in 2002 from Frank's vision of helping others the way he has helped his family.

Relocating from the Detroit area to southwest Florida in 2006, Frank enjoys the warm, tropical weather, although he is admittedly not excited about hurricane season.  He is an avid golfer and talented bowler (200+ average).  Frank and his wife Linda have been married since 2004 and have two sons, who are both native Floridians.
