Experience Makes all the difference

Erik L. Puffenberger

Branch Manager


I believe that keeping things simple creates the best results. My goal is simply to take care of our Financial Advisors so they are well positioned to take care of their clients. Through this partnership, we can all work together to take great care of our community.

Capabilities to impact your life and wealth

Because most people are primarily concerned with their family, health and wealth, Erik believes that wealth management plays a critical role in our society. Like a family physician or a school teacher, a Financial Advisor is a key contributor to their community and can truly "make a difference" in the lives of their clients.

Experience to guide you forward

With more than 20 years of experience, 13 of which with UBS, Erik is a dedicated manager focused on helping Advisors deliver for their clients. From our decades-long wealth management expertise and industry-leading intellectual capital to local-level decision making that responds more readily to clients' needs, UBS ensures that our Advisors and their clients have the right resources to be successful.

My professional achievements and education

Erik is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a Degree in Communications. He holds the Series 3, 7, 9, 10, 63 and 66 securities licenses.

Making a difference in my community

Erik is very active in the community. He currently works with American Corporate Sponsors as a mentor to military veterans preparing for their business career. He previously served on the Nationwide Children's Hospital Advisory Board and continues to raises funds for both Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. In his free time, Erik enjoys golfing, reading, exercising, listening to music and spending time with his family and friends. He lives in Bexley, Ohio with his wife Stacy, son Ben, daughter Drew and labradoodle Teddy.
