Eric J. Bastian

Systems Administrator

As the Systems Administrator here at Paragon Financial, my role within our team is serving as Command Central for all activities at the firm. I support the financial advisors by helping them stay organized, and ensuring everyone knows what they need to do, and when it needs to be done by.

I love being part of such a warm and supportive team. We don’t do things just for ourselves, we do them for the greater good of the firm and our clients. I’m driven by helping our advisors be successful, and building a thriving practice our clients can rely on. I take great pride in trying to do each activity in the most efficient way possible. Every day I attempt to do my work faster and more accurately than the day before.

I have a passion for economics and process management, and have always loved the Stock Market. As such, this role is a perfect fit for my passion and talents. I take great pleasure in participating in the complex workings of running a successful financial planning practice.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, and a Masters degree in Economics. Since graduating, I have built up more than two decades of experience in the financial services industry, including serving as a financial advisor with Prudential Securities.I live in Short Pump, and am part of a very loving and busy household with my wife Maribeth, our two daughters, Anna and Kendall, my parents Arthur and Marianna, and our dog, Moose. As you can imagine, quiet moments are few and far between, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

When I do get some time to myself, I enjoy watching sports and playing the piano – in a former life, I was a concert pianist! I am also a devoted Christ follower, and volunteer in many areas at our church, including music and fine arts.
