SIDNEY — Legendary football coach Lou Holtz will headline an all-star lineup of some of the nation’s top financial advisors during the 2017 West-Central Ohio Financial Summit, April 27, in the Sidney High School auditorium.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Shelby and Darke counties. The event is sponsored by Eikenberry Retirement Planning in Sidney.

“This event will educate and inspire you from start to finish,” John Eikenberry, CEO of Eikenberry Retirement Planning, said. “This is truly an amazing lineup of financial experts with more than 100 years of collective money management experience.”

Eikenberry said the financial experts on the program will be there to educate attendees and to answer questions about asset management. “These men have helped thousands of individuals develop future income for retirement,” he said.

Holtz, former coach at the University of Notre Dame, will be joined by financial advisors Dean Zayed, CEO of Brookstone Capital Management; Jim Pritchard, partner at W.E. Donoghue; Thomas Hardin, CEO of Canterbury Investment Management; and Phil Graham, CSO of Financial Independence Group.

“Coach Holtz has established himself as one of the most successful college football coaches of all time,” said Nick Boeckman, certified financial planner at Eikenberry Retirement Planning. Holtz served as a college football studio analyst on ESPN from 2004 to 2015. He appeared on ESPNEWS, ESPN College GameDay programs and SportsCenter, as well as serving as an onsite analyst for college football games.

For many years Holtz has been considered among the greatest speaking legends in America today. He speaks on overcoming seemingly impossible challenges by setting goals and working to achieve them. He has built a reputation as a motivator, a demanding disciplinarian and someone who relishes challenges and hard work.

“Coach Holtz will share how to make the proper adjustments for optimal success,” Boeckman said. “He will also relate how to see the entire playing field to make successful decisions and how focusing on people drives success.”
