Edward Bove is a founding member of Ducerus and the college planning director of its Union, New Jersey office.

He has more than 20 years of experience as a financial advisor and tax professional.

Ed is a firm believer in taking an educational approach to discussing tax issues and money matters with people so they can feel comfortable and confident in handling important financial situations in their lives.

After experiencing first-hand the complex maze of putting his eldest child through the college admissions and financial aid processes, Ed realized there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. Most people are totally unprepared for this and fail to maximize their eligibility for aid or adequately plan how to pay their portion of college costs.

So Ed decided to commit a massive amount of time and resources to learn the system inside out so he would be able to help people avoid the headaches and frustrations that so many parents of college-bound students are forced to endure. As a result of those efforts, Ed has been able to help numerous families throughout New Jersey learn how to put their kids through college without going broke.

After several years working independently as the owner of Beacon College Planning, Ed decided to join forces with more than a dozen other successful planners around the country. From this joint effort emerged a powerful, nationwide entity: Ducerus - Your Total College Solution.

Ducerus (pronounced "do-sare-us") comes from the Latin word ducere meaning "to lead."

A graduate of Seton Hall University, Ed also is an accomplished author, most recently contributing articles to the business section of the Daily Record newspaper of Morris County, NJ. He resides in Northern New Jersey with his wife and three children.
