Meet Our Founders

The Horizon Financial Group

The Horizon Financial Group was founded in 1990 by Ronald L. Douglas, CFP® and J. Eric Hoemeyer, CFP® as an independent Wealth Management firm. While working within the multiple disciplines that make up a full service Wealth Management shop (Estate Planning, Financial Consulting, Tax Strategy, Risk Reduction, and Investment Services), Ron and Eric have always created a standard of "doing what is right for each client" in providing plans, processes, and advice individually constructed for their unique situation. Representing accountants, doctors, engineers, school teachers, business owners, and a myriad of other professions, both Ron and Eric have been entrenched in the Financial Planning community and have been a sought after resource to the public they serve. Our staff is second to none. Client service is not only spoken here, it's delivered! We pride ourselves in the relationships developed with the individuals we serve. We look forward to the opportunity to be of service to you!
