Caleb Laidig

Caleb graduated from Bethel College in 2011 with his B.A. in Accounting. While at Bethel, Caleb learned not only in the classroom but also on the court where he was a captain for the Pilots basketball team. This started his process in leadership and developing others while focusing on finances. 

Before joining SEA Financial, Caleb worked at Crowe Horwath, a national public accounting firm, for three years in assurance services. This experience groomed him technically and professionally to help companies across the country make sound business decisions. This business background and experience with financial statements has helped with his transition to SEA Financial Group.

Caleb cares about people and seeing them be successful in all facets of life. He joined SEA Financial Group to use his financial background and the Dave Ramsey philosophies that he firmly believes in to walk alongside people to achieve their goals. Caleb became a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) as well in 2014 and still maintains his relationship with Dave’s team as a SmartVestor Pro.
