Our Team of Retirement Planning Specialists is Here to Help You
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 Licensed Financial Professional, 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 professional for many outlets, including WSPA Your Carolina first, ABC, 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, 2 a.m. & 7 a.m. Saturdays, and noon and 2 a.m. & 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 professional, 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.
Shortly after college graduation, Dan Crider began his career as a Licensed Insurance and Retirement Agent where he also completed his three courses of LUTCF (Life Underwriting Training Council Fellowship). As a conscientious financial professional & business owner, he has almost 30 years of experience in the industry.
He co-founded a highly successful company with his wife Tammy, where they had several offices in NC and SC. Dan was thrilled to join Greg Elie’s team at Prosperity Group in 2018 and continues to diligently work hard at expanding the company, where he also manages the Prosperity Group office in Seneca.
Dan is a committed and knowledgeable financial professional and loves working with people from all walks of life. Ultimately, he is devoted to placing his clients on the right path to their abundant financial futures.
Tammy Crider is a licensed insurance agent in NC, SC, and GA who has worked in the financial industry for over 25 years. Hailing from Mooresville NC, she moved to Greenville in 2017.
Tammy began at Bank of America after graduating college and worked there for 12 years. Starting out in the branches, her dedication and hard work ethic catapulted her from a Senior Loan Officer to The Head of Full Service Brokerage Department.
Her true compassion and love for all people is undeniable though admittedly, she receives the most joy working with pre-retirement/ retirement aged clients. Tammy’s innate ability to listen closely and decipher their needs naturally led her to the insurance retirement planning industry.
In 2003 she co-founded a very successful company with her husband, Dan, where they advised clients on future retirement goals. Tammy and Dan have been working with Prosperity Group Advisors for over 2 years and adding this dynamic duo to the team has proven to be a seamless and rewarding experience.
