After graduating from Texas Tech University with a degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Criminology, and as a player on the Texas Tech Red Raiders football team, Angel started his financial services career in 1977 with The Equitable, a firm he worked with for the next 35 years of career. He and Jerry Thormahlen, having worked together at the Equitable, started their own firm in 2015, merging with Paul Gaschen in 2019 to form Gaschen, Berlingeri & Associates. With the wonderful addition of Jon Casebolt in 2023, he is proud to be part of the Gaschen, Berlingeri & Casebolt team!
An interesting fact is that Angel was hired by Paul’s father, John Gaschen, in 1977--- Angel then returned the favor in 1991 by hiring Paul!
His career has focused on learning the financial needs and concerns of clients, then finding ways to help them create solutions for the goals they have. Having experienced the many economic changes of the financial industry through the years, this has equipped him to create solutions that not only handle the events of today, but prepare for the changes of tomorrow. He finds joy in working within the generational needs of families.
Angel has a son, James, who is married to Daylene --- and his precious joy is his granddaughter, Jessica! When not at the office, Angel can be found traveling the roads of Texas and beyond, with a special emphasis on the Texas Coast. He finds joy in his relationship with Christ, and that joy is expanded in his hobbies of fishing and all things Texas Tech Athletics (a special leaning towards the gridiron!)
