A successful investment professional in the life insurance and real estate development industries, George Argyros Jr. was able to give his wife Shannon the wedding of her dreams. While Shannon made sure the entire wedding matched her dreams, she also paid special attention to her fiancé’s preferences. She bought him not just one ring, but three: one made of gold, one made of silver, and one made of titanium. An enthusiastic watch collector, George Argyros Jr. has watches in these three materials and now has a wedding ring to match whichever watch he chooses to wear. In recognition of George’s debonair style, she created a lounge area at the reception replete with white leather furniture, cigars, a martini bar, and an actual throne for her new husband. Playing off the throne, she also had a groom’s cake made with George on the top dressed as a king. George Argyros Jr. repaid his bride’s thoughtfulness with a surprise honeymoon that began with 10 days of sailing in the Bahamas, was succeeded by a week at their home in Utah, and ended with a return trip to the Caribbean.
Such a lavish wedding and honeymoon was made possible by George Argyros Jr.’s successful investment company, Elite Financial Group. The latest of multiple startups, Elite Financial Group is the fourth company George Argyros Jr. has founded. The previous three included Leveraged Life, Eagle Investment Fund, and The Argyros Group. While Leveraged Life is a subsidiary of Elite Financial Group and provides life insurance premium finance programs, Eagle Investment Fund is a private equity firm, and The Argyros Group is a diversified investment group.
