How did (David) Marc Curles Become an SEC Official

David Marc Curles, the SEC official whose incompetence has effected the outcome of at least two important SEC football games this year has a business relationship with Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation. You remember Lincoln Financial, they s"owned" the SEC regional telecast prior to ESPN. You may be more familiar with Jefferson Pilot. Lincoln Financial took over for Jefferson pilot a few years back.

Accordning to FINRA ( David M. Curles is currently employed and registered with Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation, 201 Office Park Dr., Birmingham AL, 35223-2424. He has only been registered since February 7th, 2007.

Mr. Curles has not passed any Principal/Supervisory exams. He has passed one general industry/product exam and one state securities law exam.

Just my opinion, but I would not have my money with this man considering the "judgement" he has displayed during his weekend job as an SEC official.

Marc graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree and has since earned the designation of CHARTERED RETIREMENT PLANNING COUNSELORSM from the College for Financial Planning in Denver, CO. He is currently working toward the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification. Marc joined the firm after working for 16 years as a sales manager for a manufacturing company. There, Marc developed long term relationships with his customers, which is still a focus of his practice with his clients.

Marc is the father of two daughters, Cassidy and Madison. He has helped coach Madison’s softball team, and during the fall he is a football referee in the Southeastern Conference. He has volunteered at the Pathways Womens Shelter for their Fiscally Fit Program, and he is a member of Valleydale Church, where he serves on the Technical Team. He also enjoys playing golf when he can find the time.

So is he a moonlighting financial planner? or a moonlighting referee? As an avid Bulldog fan and a REAL financial planner (CFP), I can't stand two things: A poser financial planner and a poser referee
