Monthly Meetings

Andrew Meyer to Address GSJA January 21 at Lithos, Livingston

Andrew S. Meyer, a Financial Consultant at Wells Fargo Advisers in Short Hills, will be the speaker at our January 21 noon meeting at Lithos, 405 Eisenhower Parkway, Livingston. This is the same place as our Holiday Party in December. The cost is $22 and the phone there is 973-758-1111.

Meyer graduated from Stetson University in Deland, Florida, in 2007 with a BBA in Finance. He earned the Charted Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC) designation in 2008.

As a Financial Consultant, he takes pride in developing comprehensive investment plans to meet clients’ specific needs. His ability to leverage the vast experience of the Faig-Roemmele group, of which he is a member, as well as the world class resources from Wells Fargo Advisors allows him to take an independent unbiased approach in reviewing all aspects of clients’ financial lives. He utilizes numerous investment products to allow clients to make a seamless transition from growing their portfolios to producing income to sustain a comfortable retirement.

Away from the office, he is an avid baseball and football fan and enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and two young daughters.

We are indebted to Trustee Dan Schlossberg for arranging for the speaker and to Gail Gerson for setting up the restaurant.

Speaking of the restaurant, we have to commend the hardy 14 or so souls who braved the winter snows to make it to the party at Lithos. We had about 15 cancellations, not to mention the band, which had to cancel because they were stuck in New York. Those who made it had a wonderful time, swapped gifts, drank some special wines and devoured the Greek delicacies.

Directions: The restaurant is easily accessed off Exit 4 of I-280. Just exit and go south – the restaurant is on your right less than a mile from I-280. You can take I-80 to I-280 if coming from the west. From the east, you can take the Garden State Parkway to I-280.
