REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., June 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Digital wealth manager Personal Capital, an Empower Company, unveiled today its newest member of the «Financial Heroes» campaign, Apolo Anton Ohno, the most decorated U.S. male athlete of all time.
Ohno is a legend in the world of winter sports, but there’s more to his story than the eight medals he won in short-track speed skating. After hanging up his skates in 2010, he made a hard pivot into the world of business, where he applies the same focus and discipline that helped bring him athletic success. Now, he’s joining Personal Capital to help others build healthy practices, where financial wellness can be part of their daily routine.
«In sports and finance, when you have the right metrics in place, you can track your progress and that’s more important to focus on than the prize,» says Ohno. «Once you have a Personal Capital dashboard that you can view on a daily basis, you’ll realize your goals can be within your reach. I’m partnering with Personal Capital to help promote healthy financial habits and to inspire others to reach their goals.»
Ohno joins an impressive roster of fellow Financial Heroes including holistic health guru Dr. Deepak Chopra, two-time former Pro Basketball All-Star Baron Davis, and CEO of Peek.com Ruzwana Bashir. Through this new partnership, Ohno intends to be a catalyst for raising discussions about and awareness of financial wellness.
«Like many, I’ve admired Apolo’s tenacity and infectious enthusiasm for helping others achieve their greatest potential in life,» says Craig Erickson, Vice President of Creative. «As a young athlete, he quickly learned the dedication needed to achieve his goals and there are so many parallels between this approach and personal finance. Together, we hope to promote positive habits so people can achieve their dreams.»
In his post-athletic career, Ohno is a New York Times best-selling author of «Zero Regrets» and is currently writing his latest book «Hard Pivot,» which documents the hardship, struggles and uncertainty faced in his journey as a businessman. The book is available for pre-sale and expected to be released in early 2022.
Ohno will be featured in Personal Capital’s upcoming print and digital creative. For more information about Ohno and Personal Capital’s Financial Heroes campaign, click here.
