Co-Founder, Bankers Healthcare Group
Eric Castro preaches that success is directly correlated between meaningful human interactions and trust. Whether it’s his movie studio, record company, real estate portfolio of over 500 doors, or 400-employee financial corporation—this lifelong entrepreneur thrives on helping people achieve their goals, realize their full potential, and find success both in and outside of the workplace. Recognizing the unique financing needs of healthcare professionals, in 2001 Eric co-founded Bankers Healthcare Group (BHG) along with his two partners. The Davie-based company aims to provide licensed healthcare practitioners and other licensed professionals a fast and hassle-free financial solution that fits their unique needs and schedules. What started on a shoestring budget with Eric and his co-founders running every facet of the business, BHG today has funded more than $4 billion in total financial solutions. BHG is often recognized both regionally and nationally for innovation, continued growth, and being a best place to work. BHG has been placed on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies more than 10 times, been named the Best Place to Work in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal, and is ranked #2 on FORTUNE® magazine’s Best Companies to work for in Financial Services.
