Who We Are


Erica Doré

Chief Compliance Officer

Erica loves mystery novels, but it’s no mystery why she loves working at GDS. Erica has been a part of the GDS team since its inception, and has worked in the financial services industry for nearly 20 years. The support she provides to both our clients and our team has made her an invaluable member of GDS. Erica manages a wide array of operational duties, including opening accounts, transferring funds and securities, as well as handling client service requests.

To Erica, the clients are the most important part of her job, and she strives to ensure that the needs of the clients are met as they pursue their financial goals. More than anything, Erica emphasizes that the client comes first at GDS. She is committed to exceeding clients’ expectations and providing a high level of service. Erica recognizes the importance of having a financial planner you can trust, and makes it a priority to fulfill the GDS mission of treating clients like family.

The importance of family is something that Erica emphasizes in both her professional and her personal life. Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Erica lived in Ohio while attending the Ohio State University before settling in Texas to be near family. She now lives in Flower Mound with her daughter, Madeline, and is grateful to live close to relatives. In her free time, Erica loves reading murder mysteries – if you have any recommendations, be sure to pass them along! You can also find her cheering on Madeline at her soccer and basketball games and spending time with her extended family.

The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of approximately 32,725 nominations, more than 5,000 advisors received the award. This ranking is not indicative of an advisor's future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients' experience.
