Associate Wealth Advisor
Hector Castellanos is an Associate Wealth Advisor at Centric. Hector was born in Guatemala and came to the United States at the age of 6. Hector attended Colorado State University and received degrees in Psychology and Sociology with a concentration in Criminology and a minor in Political Science.
Hector is fascinated with understanding human behavior and how it influences one’s passions and goals. This fascination led to Hector exploring a career in the finance industry to understand how money impacts important decisions. Hector began his career as a Personal Banker. Through various conversations with his clients that were business owners, Hector found a passion for Business Banking.
Hector was promoted to Business Relationship Manager, where he excelled in building and growing new business banking relationships. Hector then was promoted to Commercial Lender, where he helped companies with larger and more complex lending needs. Hector achieved great success for himself and his clients, but he knew that banking was just one piece of the financial puzzle. A full scope of the client’s financial picture was needed to understand their overall financial goals.
He chose to leave banking and focus his energy on helping his clients with their Financial Planning and Advising needs.
