Calvin Guyer developed his unique frame of reference as a coach through his military service working on highly complex engineering projects and as a certified financial planner working with high net worth families and business owners.
Calvin has had a series of leadership roles in various industries throughout his career. In 1994, after multiple total aircraft losses due to a mismanaged program, Calvin was appointed Director of the Air Force Jet Engine Oil Analysis Program. He assembled a team of technicians, engineers, equipment manufacturers, and researchers to identify and solve key technical and programmatic issues. The Air Force Chief of Safety and the Air Force Deputy Commander for Maintenance praised the report, its findings, and recommended full implementation. In 2009, he was tapped to lead a branch of nine advisors at Merrill Lynch with over $5 million in production. He successfully managed the office during a troubling economic downturn. His leadership and management skills were further challenged when he was recruited into the banking industry to lead a financial advisor change process from a transaction focus to a comprehensive financial planning focus. He successfully restructured the program, on boarded additional financial advisors, created a client-focused support center, and grew revenues in excess of 10%. He is an accomplished speaker and workshop facilitator focusing on emotional intelligence, succession planning, and developing a coaching culture within organizations.
Calvin is a graduate of Iowa State University with a bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering and Wright State University with a master of science in Electrical Engineering. He holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation, is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy, and holds multiple FINRA registrations including registered principle.
