Eric Schmid

Partner, Financial Planning, Investment Management, Operations & Compliance

I have made a career of solving unique and difficult problems. Prior to working in personal financial services, I spent over 15 years in the medical device industry developing new products and directing engineering and development groups. I have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College and studied graduate Chemical Engineering at University of California, San Diego.

At the end of 2011, I decided to make the move to the world of personal financial planning. I brought my engineering, technical and analytical skills, along with my knack for developing solutions to unique and complex problems, to my current role at Ted Buchan & Company.

I am a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), CTEC Registered Tax Preparer (CRTP), Accredited Investment Fiduciary designation (AIF®) and serve as Chief Compliance Officer (CCO).

I live in Sabre Springs with my wife and three children. I love sports, the outdoors and just being active. I played baseball in college and continue to play basketball and ice hockey locally. I spend much of my spare time coaching my children’s youth soccer and baseball teams and when we are not out on the fields, you can find us camping or on a family road trip.
