William B. Giffen
Client Development Manager
William Giffen is an Associate Wealth Advisor at Centric. Previously, William taught at the high school level for nine years. He brings this education experience to his clients.
William found Centric's comprehensive planning approach and fiduciary responsibility to be a great fit for what he was looking for once he left teaching. Being a former educator, William saw the value that Centric was bringing to individuals and families. Our education systems are not currently educating our citizens regarding daily living expenses, let alone financial planning and wealth accumulation.
William’s passion for wealth management came from his own experiences. At the age of 27 years old, he developed cancer and saw the costs associated with such an event, which can devastate a family and what they’re looking to achieve. When he was hired as an Junior High educator in Huntsville, Tx., his first living wage paying employment, he made all the mistakes a lot of people make. He racked up credit card debt, because he could eat out whenever he wanted, bought a big screen tv, purchased a surround sound system. William would worry about paying it back later. Pretty soon it all caught up to him along with the stress that comes with it. William doesn’t want others to have to experience what he did.
William has a passion to work with others to find their financial freedom, reach their goals and dreams, and maximize their lifestyle.
