The Proof Is In Our People
Why Harold Chose Rider
A native of Old Bridge, N.J., Harold was drawn to Rider’s “small town” feel. He found it comforting to see familiar faces around campus. He also liked the accessibility of the professors. “I always felt like when I needed something, it was available to me,” he said.
Rider's Impact on Harold's Success
As a small business owner, Harold's responsibilities encompass four areas: management, strategic planning, marketing and accounting. He attributes some of his knowledge and confidence in these areas to the University. “The collective efforts of the faculty prepared me for my career path,” he said.
After working at Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management for five years, Harold founded his own financial planning and investment firm in 2010. “My ability to step out of that environment and be confident in doing so in one of the worst global financial crises is very powerful,” he said.
Harold worked at TPC Jasna Polana golf course in nearby Princeton as an undergraduate.
Harold is co-founder and chair of the Bucks/Mercer chapter of the Rider University Alumni Association.
