Like First Person, it has taken an entrepreneurial approach to building an organization that wins as a result of a great team, a strong culture and a dedication to excellence.”
Team owner Ed Carpenter commented saying:
I am excited to welcome First Person Advisors to the ECR family. “Not only can they help us succeed on the race track, but they can help us navigate they ever changing landscape that our business operates in.
