Jeff Flick

Jeffery D. Flick left this world into the arms of God on Friday, July 8, 2016.  He was born on November 25, 1978 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Charlene and Dan Flick.  He was raised in Tulsa and attended Monte Casino, Cascia Hall, and Memorial High School.  After high school graduation, he joined the U.S. Marine Corp. While a member of the Marines, Jeff served on the 13th MEU First Response Team to the U.S.S. Cole bombing in Yemen.  He was a weapons expert and assisted as a member of the Security Detail for the FBI investigations of the bombing.  His unit achieved meritorious and Presidential citations.

Following the Marines, Jeff attended Santa Barbara City College.  After course completion there, Jeff returned to Norman, Ok to become an official OU Sooner.  He graduated from the University of Oklahoma with two degrees from the Price School of Business:  one in Economics and the other in Entrepreneurship and Venture Management.  While at OU he served as the Vice President of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization and as a teaching assistant for the schools MBA Entrepreneurial Studies Program. His love for horses led him to become a member of the OU Polo Team where he played and served as Chief of Operations.

After graduation Jeff started his post university career in the Chicago financial markets, where he worked for Peregrine Asset Management. Flick created and developed the firm’s business development practices and new client acquisition strategies. He was also responsible for the economic and performance analysis of their proprietary trading strategies. While in Chicago, he also obtained his U.S. Polo Association Umpire certification and umpired games in the Naperville.  Following Peregrine Jeff joined Merrill Lynch in Tulsa for a brief period prior to joining his Father at Infinity Financial Group in 2011. That year in Tulsa he was selected as a member of Tulsa Business Journal’s “40 under forty”.   In Tulsa he worked diligently to revive polo and was instrumental in starting the Arrowhead Polo Club at Mohawk Field.

Jeff moved to Dallas in 2015.  He quickly sought out the closest polo club and joined  Prestonwood at Oak Point where he played. He continued working with his father until he recently began pursuing a 2nd career learning the construction management business.

In addition to polo, Jeff was an avid and skilled outdoorsman loving hunting and fishing. He also dearly loved sports and during the last year he enjoyed helping with his nephew’s baseball and soccer practices. He was fun-loving and had a smile that lit up a room.

About Dan Flick

He understands that no amount of MBA and Ph.D degrees can provide familiarity, the know-how, or the skills to professionally and effectively represent and manage every facet within the M&A (mergers and acquisitions) process, including assisting in the decision process, positioning a company for sale, marketing the company to a specific and targeted market, and most importantly, closing the deal while always recognizing the emotional needs of the owner.
