Craig Venard

Financial Advisor

Craig Venard was born in Kansas City, Kansas and moved to the St. Louis area at 7 years old.  He received his Bachelor of Science from Iowa State University in Psychology, Economics, and Business.

Mr. Venard began working after college in the incentive travel industry at Maritz Travel Company as a Travel Director, which took him to nearly 100 cities and 23 countries in 3 short years with many Fortune 500 clients.
After 3 years, he moved inside the company to administrate cost incentive travel programs.

In 1984, Craig left the travel industry to begin his career in the investment and insurance field and works with Premier Financial Partners. He holds Series 6, 22, and 63 registrations, as well as life and health licenses.  Craig specializes in offering and servicing 401(k) and profit sharing retirement plans, as well as working with individual clients with their accumulation and income planning needs.

Craig is also certified as a Human Behavior Consultant, providing consulting and training in the area of workplace relationships, innovation, and other soft-skills.

He is married to Jeannie and they have 2 children, Bradley and Haley.  Brad works and lives in Birmingham Alabama, while Haley teaches first and second grade on the island of Curacao in the Caribbean.  (Not fun for the parents, but a great place to visit!)

He has served as a board member of the Progressive Youth Center and Westminster Christian Academy.  Craig and Jeannie are active members of The Journey, a multi-campus non-denominational church in St. Louis.
