David R. Pasciak, founder and President of VantagePointe Financial Group began his financial services career in 1980 in a Detroit based John Hancock office. In 1992 David’s outstanding performance caught the attention of the John Hancock Management Division, and an offer to serve as General Agent for the Grand Rapids, Michigan office soon followed. Moving his young family to West Michigan in 1992 was a challenge David accepted eagerly.

David has a great appreciation for the importance of serving community. In 2008 VantagePointe Financial Group named Special Olympics as a firm-wide charity. David felt this was a supportive way to combine his passion for sports and children. Over past years, he has helped coach Special Olympics basketball games, and participated in many other events to benefit these phenomenal athletes.
