Former Notre Dame football and track standout Van Pearcy ('85)--now an award-winning financial advisor leading his wealth services team in Midland, Texas--began his role on the Monogram Club board in 2003, serving as secretary from 2005-2008. Following Joe Restic's election as president, Pearcy has served the Monogram Club as an advisor to the board, where he has played a key role in developing the Monogram "brand" and expanding membership benefits for the club.

Currently the key financial advisor and branch manager/registered principal for his Midland Raymond James office (Van Pearcy's Wealth Services Team), Pearcy has 24 years of experience helping clients with complex estate and tax savings strategies, as well as various diversified, conservative investment strategies.

He received his bachelor's degree in economics in 1985 and his MBA from Notre Dame in 1987 before starting his firm in the Midland/Odessa area of West Texas, where he soon became the first recipient of the "Leadership Achievement Award."

Pearcy aligned with Raymond James Financial Services in 2000, where he is recognized by Barron's as one of the top independent financial advisors in the country. He was named to the Financial Advisor Hall of Fame in 2008, and in 2009, Pearcy was recognized as a "Financial Advisor with a Heart" by Registered Rep. magazine, when he helped raise $2.3 million to build a Mondo track & field complex for Midland's public school system.

Pearcy taught basic and advanced investment classes at Midland College for eight years and currently serves on the investment board for Midland's Children's Rehab Center, the Midland Fireman's Relief & Retirement Fund, and he sits on the St. Ann's Catholic Church board for the parish education endowment fund.

A native of Andrews, Texas, Pearcy was a prep All-American in football and track, setting the national sophomore 400-meter record and ranking among the nation's top long jumpers. Van experienced four knee surgeries while attending Notre Dame, yet served as a starting wide receiver, track captain, and cartoonist for The Observer student newspaper. Van and his 4x400 teammates still hold the Irish mile relay record.

Van and his wife Donna have a family foundation that awards scholarships to graduates of their former high school and MBA students at Notre Dame. They have two children: daughter Erin, a business graduate from TCU and now employed with Chevron, and son, Vance, who currently attends TCU as a junior.
