Client Service Manager
As a Client Service Manager, Ariel’s role involves careful precision in handling account paperwork and balance transfers—balanced with his passion for building relationships with and getting to know Halbert Hargrove’s clients. “I enjoy communicating with and serving others,” he says. “And I love that I get to interact with great people on a regular basis. The HH Long Beach office is a special place. My role allows me to engage with so many different clients while striving to meet their needs and make things better in creative and efficient ways.”
Ariel joined our Long Beach office in mid-2018 after graduating with a Masters of Arts in Philosophy from Biola University. While a graduate student, he worked as a research and teaching assistant. He also served as president of his school’s Associated Students, where he led a team in planning events for students, staff, and faculty, and worked to create a healthy campus culture. He earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee in 2014.
Ariel’s employment experience includes work as an advocacy strategist for Global Impact Philippines in Davao, Philippines during 2014 and 2015. While an undergraduate, he interned for Worldview Initiative for one year. He has also been a volunteer fire fighter. His current community involvement includes serving as co-pastor in his local church.
Married to Belle, Ariel makes a point of focusing on his gratitude for what he has in life. Not least have been his education and exposure to many cultures and experiences. He’s lived in Canada, Australia, and the Philippines—and his languages include Cebuano and reading Ancient Greek.
