Eric Anton

Treasurer

Eric is a Maine native and lives with his wife, two children and two dogs in Falmouth, Maine. In 2009, he joined forces with John LeMieux to form Anton LeMieux Financial Group to help individuals navigate the complex world of personal finance and gain confidence in the financial future of their families. Eric says the best day in his professional life was when John asked him to join forces with him and start a new, independent investment firm.

Starting a new venture is always nerve-wracking. However, early in the process, John was diagnosed with cancer and lost a leg to this insidious disease. Despite the stress this added to the usual start-up worries, the firm thrived and continues to grow. Every day, Eric sees the challenges John faces as an amputee. It is this experience that motivates Eric to participate in the Amputee Association of Maine and to help the Association provide support for other amputees.
