He received a bachelor's degree in business economics from UC Riverside and a certificate in accounting from Santa Clara University.

Feor, who started as a staff accountant in August, will now provide accounting and tax services for individuals, privately held companies and family-owned businesses as well as oversee the firm's "talent on-boarding program" (TOP) internship effort. A certified public accountant, Feor earned a Master of Business Administration from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester.
