He currently runs Centennial Securities Company and holds several industry licenses including that of Options Principal, Financial & Operations Principal, Municipal Principal, and General Principal. He is also a fully licensed Securities Representative and Investment Advisor. Randy is currently a member of FINRA's Series 27/28 Principal Qualification Examination Committee.

Randy enjoys hunting, fishing and the travels associated with these activities, especially trips that include his son, Brandon.  He also enjoys watching his daughter, Lindsey, perform on stage.

Randy is a director on the board of Pursuing a Dream Foundation, a local organization that assists the disabled to enjoy the outdoors.  His passion is to work with kids either one on one in a boat/blind or at the annual "Get Hooked" events where over 250 special needs kids come together to fish.

My motivation

I'm motivated to set a good example for my children and to leave my community, the people I touch, and the places I visit better than I found them.

My latest accomplishments

My latest accomplishment was being asked to serve our community as a member of the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation.

Next big goal

My next goal is to develop a strategic plan that will carry Centennial Securities Company into the next generation.  To pass the torch of ownership on to qualified individuals that continue to believe that being a good corporate citizen is vital and that there are some things more important than profits.

Why is choosing your own path important?

Why would I want anyone else to select my path?  Life is a journey as they say and I want to choose the path I take on this adventure.  It's easy to become so goal oriented and so focused that we overlook the simple things we should be enjoying each and every day.  Life isn't about getting to a destination but rather how we live along the way.  God has more in store for us than we can even imagine but we just need to be open and aware or you will look up one day and realize you've missed out on the biggest part of life!
