Randy Shoker - President and Chief Investment Officer
Randy Shoker is founder and President of Shoker Investment Counsel, Inc. and the firm's Chief Investment Officer. Starting his career in 1985 as a stockbroker, first with Cowen and Company and then at Prudential-Bache Securities in Cincinnati, Randy learned firsthand that he could not effectively manage his clients’ money as long he worked for a broker-dealer. He founded Shoker Investment Counsel, Inc. in 1990 as a fee-only money management firm to be able to manage his clients’ money without having to sell financial products. Randy's depth of experience comes from guiding clients through everything from the crash of 1987 to today's highly volatile market environment. As Chief Investment Officer, Randy is responsible for the development and implementation of overall investment strategy, including asset allocation, sector weightings, and security selection.
