Darren should be a familiar face to you all! He's been a friend and colleague to Veater Financial Group for many years and has been a registered representative with LPL Financial since August of 2014. Starting this Monday, Darren will be in the office full time taking on Steve's responsibilities as he begins to apply to business school.
Darren was born and raised in San Jose with his parents and older brother. Growing up, he spent a lot of time boating and fishing in both Maui and Lake Tulloch and still continues those traditions today whenever he gets a chance.
In the summer of 1999, he moved to Fresno for school and was fortunate to participate in a few study abroad programs which took him to both London and Paris. Darren had taken an interest in finance early on in his childhood. After learning the value of a hard earned dollar from his father, Darren built on that principle and graduated from Fresno State with his degree in Finance.
He is an active member of the community and spends time serving as the community service director of the North Fresno Rotary. In his free time he is devoted to fitness and enjoys taking ju jitsu classes at Dethrone MMA here in Fresno. He also loves to BBQ, wine taste and work on his "salsa" garden (tomatoes, peppers, etc) at home.
