Meet the Team
Oak River Financial Group, Inc. is made up of qualified financial professionals who are passionate about helping individuals and families achieve their ideal retirements.
Aaron Freeman President
Aaron helps clients pursue their financial dreams with the same integrity and passion he once displayed while serving his country as a decorated member of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Aaron began his financial services career at Oak River Financial Group in 2004, four years after he was honorably discharged from the Marines due to injury. He became Oak River’s president and CEO in the spring of 2011 when he purchased the firm from his father, Gary.
An Investment Adviser Representative and licensed insurance agent in Texas, Aaron holds the Chartered Financial Consultant designation and is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors. He was presented NAIFA’s 2010 “Rising Star” Award.
A native of southeast Texas, Aaron attended Stephen F. Austin State University and Lamar University, where he majored in business and made the dean’s list. He was the honor graduate of his U.S. Marine Corps recruiting class and was meritoriously promoted twice. He also was honored with the Leatherneck Award, presented for outstanding achievement during recruit training.
When he isn’t helping clients, Aaron cherishes spending time with his family. He also is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and bass fishing, and is a lifetime member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Houston Safari Club and B.A.S.S.
