Mark Herman
Portfolio Manager, Head Trader

Where is your happy place? On the water with a fish on the line.

How do you define success? Having a passion for what one does and using that passion to lift others around you.

My all-time role-model is Freddie Solomon because he taught me if you want something, you have to go earn it.

My friends always make fun of me for my wooden 3 wood.

In another life, I would probably be a blacksmith so I could forge my own tools.
