Focused on goal-based planning and recommendations, Emily Quatman has been a Financial Advisor since 2011. She feels great satisfaction from working with clients to develop a plan, map out their goals, and see them work towards their objectives.

Emily attended school in Texas and Ohio, but after an early-morning walk on a Santa Cruz beach on vacation, she decided to move to the area permanently. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, dogs, and cat. Emily loves exploring the outdoors with her family, whether they are hiking in the redwoods, walking along the beach, or camping in the Sequoias.

“I take great pride in helping my clients work toward their financial goals. I focus on goal-based planning specific to each individual’s wants, needs, and objectives to provide financial confidence.”

Sam Solgan has a track record of helping members uncover and develop their life goals, creating personalized plans for their futures. He has worked in the financial industry since 2009, when he was an intern attending Santa Clara University Leavey School of Business, where he graduated in the top 10% of his class with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Economics.

After leaving big banks for Bay Federal’s model of putting its members first in 2013, Sam established a reputation locally as an investment professional you can have confidence in. The Harbor High alum enjoys hiking and visiting national parks across the US. He lives on the Eastside of Santa Cruz and is very active with Lions Club International, specifically the Cabrillo Host Lions chapter.

Sam received his CSRIC designation in 2021, which identifies him as a financial professional that has the background, knowledge, and situational awareness to help clients invest in sustainable, responsible, and impact investments (SRI).

“I'm grateful for the opportunity to educate our local community about their options, help them integrate their personal values and purpose into their investment portfolio strategy, and measure the impact of these investments over the long term."

Bennett Bilgere has been working in the financial industry since he joined Bay Federal in 2014. He chose to become an investment advisor representative because it allowed him to combine his interest in financial markets with his passion for helping people. After seeing the effect of the 2008 recession on his parents’ retirement plans, he learned the real value in financial planning.

Growing up in Santa Cruz, Bennett went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Sonoma State University. He moved back to the area after college, since Santa Cruz provides opportunities for everything he loves to do and the weather to do it all year round. Those things he loves to do include playing golf and disc golf, mountain biking, working out at the gym, and watching Bay Area sports.

Bennett finds the most rewarding part of Investment Services is getting to know Bay Federal’s members and seeing their financial confidence grow.

“I believe your hard work should pay off, and the best way to ensure that is with a financial plan custom fit to your needs.”
