Charles Werzberger brings over twenty years of experience in the medical field and photo/video industry to Forest Hills Financial Group (FHFG). As a Financial Representative, Charles helps individuals, families and business owners view their financial world through a new lens, providing personalized planning and guidance to help them make informed decisions that support wealth accumulation, distribution, and protection against unforeseen life events. Charles has the unique ability to explain complicated concepts in simple terms, while listening with an empathetic ear to truly understand his client’s concerns. His genuine approach helps Charles forge lasting relationships based on mutual trust and respect.
Charles began his professional career as an Assistant Buyer with B&H Photo Video, Inc. NYC, working with vendors to develop and improve account relationships. Always service-driven, he worked closely with sales and purchasing to match customer preferences. After thirteen years of business experience, Charles wanted to explore other avenues of study and attended Nassau Community College, Garden City, NY, where he earned an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts and Science. He also attended the Long Island School of Nursing, Deer Park, NY, earning certification as a PCT (Patient Care Technician) in Phlebotomy and an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). As a direct care worker at Hamaspik of Orange County, NY, Charles cared for developmentally disabled children and channeled his affinity for compassionate patient care and human services. While Charles enjoyed success in his career, due to a lack of financial literacy as a young man he made some financial missteps that compelled him to learn as much as possible to educate others about the importance of financial guidance. Now with FHFG, backed by the firm’s diverse resources and commitment to service, Charles is positioned to help his clients enjoy the things they love while creating and maintaining a financial roadmap that leads them to financial freedom.
Charles’s strong sense of community keeps him involved as a member of the education committee of his congregation, Eitz Chaim of Dogwood Park, NY. In his spare time, Charles enjoys art and music, especially the Opera, going to social events and meeting new people. He also loves spending time with family and friends. Charles was born in Manhattan, NY, raised in Monroe, NY and Minneapolis, MN, and now resides in West Hempstead, NY with his wife and their children Avidan, Rachel and Ilan.
