Chuck Cravens spent 30 years as a high level insurance producer, helping clients take the confusion out of retirement planning. Chuck was one of the first to recognize that use of a computer and a specialized software program would play an important role in the education of clients and the development of their financial plans. He began using a computer and software programs in 1978 in order to give clients a glimpse into their financial futures.
Chuck founded Cravens & Associates in 1985 with the idea of creating his own software program for financial advisors and agents, which would simplify the fact-finding and financial planning process. His dream was to develop a program that could help many and be understood by all. He took his 30 years of industry experience and used it to create a simplified yet detailed software program called the “Retirement Analyzer.” Chuck knew the importance of helping agents build their businesses while promoting client understanding and the RA does both. The RA is now being used across the nation by some of the most respected financial marketing organizations and individual advisors.
In keeping with Chuck’s dream, Thomas Gold Solutions continues to grow and prosper as we help marketing organizations, broker dealers, advisors and agents to increase business and become more successful.
