Greg Elie

Founder & CEO
Greg Elie has over 30 years of industry experience and health and life insurance licenses in many states, including South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida. As an Expert Complete Advisor, Greg has helped thousands of individuals save on taxes and reduce risk in their retirement portfolios. His specialties include helping clients have a more prosperous, less stressful retirement by showing them how to safely protect their assets from nursing home costs, inflation, and the ups and downs of the stock market.

Greg was once a professional tennis player and went on to coach celebrity athletes like Andre Agassi and Aaron Krickstein at IMG/ Nick Bollertari. He was also a professional singer/evangelist with his late wife, Marie, appearing on numerous TV and radio outlets across the southeast. Greg still makes frequent media appearances today, now with the purpose of helping retirees and pre-retirees reach their financial goals. He’s become the go-to financial advisor for many outlets, including ABC and WYFF 4, and has been a radio personality for a couple of decades. His show, “The Prosperity Hour,” airs on 94.5 WGTK at 5 a.m. Mondays and Fridays, 7 a.m. Saturdays, and noon and 10 p.m. on Sundays.

As an advocate to the consumer, Greg is also a speaker and writer and has given thousands of workshops throughout his career to civic and church groups, including many nonprofit organizations. As a conscientious advisor, Greg’s tailored approach allows him to meet the client’s specific needs and goals. Whereas most agents believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Greg listens closely to customize and map out a financial strategy (The Prosperity Plan) that secures and protects retirees’ nest eggs. Greg’s expertise includes IRA rescue, providing how-to tips to possibly create “A Lifetime Pension-Like Income” and his philosophy is to teach clients how to protect their assets, reduce risk and potentially create tax-free income.

Tammy Crider

With over 28 years of experience in the financial industry, Tammy Crider makes up the other half of our dynamic Crider duo and has shown her dedication to each client ever since joining Prosperity Group. Her journey began right out of college; starting with 12 years at Bank of America where they could tell early on Tammy’s inspiring work ethic belonged higher places. She excelled past senior loan officer and became an intricate part of the brokerage department before starting an affluent company alongside her husband – Dan Crider – where she was able to discover her passion for helping people with retirement goals. Tammy has only continued to climb since then, including a successful move from Mooresville, North Carolina into our spirited Greenville city in 2017.

 With so much experience and diligence, it is no wonder her talents extend to multiple states. As a licensed insurance agent, Tammy is as comfortable helping clients in the Carolinas as she is in her other two licensed states – Georgia and Florida.

 Compassionate with an always vibrant attitude, she shines the most with those who are pre-retirement/retirement aged and looking to secure their legacy. Tammy’s innate ability to listen attentively and decipher clients’ needs makes the retirement planning industry a wonderful choice for both herself as well as planning what your financial future will look like together. The Prosperity Group feels fortunate to have the Crider advisor duo with us to provide such a rewarding and seamless experience to all.
