Nik began his first professional working career in The United States Air Force straight out of high school. During his 6 years of service, he worked in a combat engineering unit where he assisted in the design, surveying, construction, materials testing, quality control and inspection of projects ranging from infrastructure, roads, and large industrial facilities to military-spec airfields all over the world. His interest in numbers and mathematics from his engineering background kindled his interest in financial markets and data, and ultimately launched his career in finance.
Years after his decorated military service, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Akron’s College of Business and Administration in Akron, Ohio with a B.B.A. in Corporate Financial Management. In 2015 he began as an Investment Analyst Intern at North Coast Executive Consulting. Upon graduating Nik began to work full time and is now responsible for investment research, financial analysis, and portfolio modeling.
Outside of the office Nik is continuing his education by studying for the graduate school entrance exam and will be pursuing the CFA Charter designation in the near future. Nik resides in Akron with his wife and daughter. In his free time enjoys running, hiking, rock climbing, and welding.
