Calvin Guyer developed his unique frame of reference as an executive coach through nearly three decades of military and corporate service. He has worked on highly complex engineering projects, as a financial advisor with Piper Jaffray and Merrill Lynch, and most recently in executive leadership as Resident Director for a Merrill Lynch office and Vice President of Think Mutual Bank where he led the Investment Services Department.
In 1994, after multiple total aircraft losses due to a mismanaged program, Calvin was appointed Director of the Air Force Jet Engine Oil Analysis Program where he assembled a team of technicians, propulsion engineers, manufacturers, and researchers to identify and solve key technical and programmatic issues. New diagnostic technology, better use of existing technology, and revisions to maintenance manuals led to reduced downtime and a substantial reduction in oil analysis related engine failures.
In 1999, after a distinguished military career, Calvin adapted his engineering and leadership skills to the field of financial planning. He has consulted with many high-net-worth individuals, families, and small business owners--mainly working on investments and estate planning matters. He was tapped as Resident Director of the Merrill Lynch office and later recruited as Vice President for Think Mutual Bank to lead their Investment Services department.
Calvin continues to lead in his community through non-profit work and dedication to the leadership development program at the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce.
Calvin is a graduate of both Iowa State University with a bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering and Wright State University with a master of science in Electrical Engineering. Calvin holds the CFP® designation from the Certified Financial Planning Board of Standards.
