Meet the Speakers
Bob Castro co-founded BHG with deep industry knowledge and an ever-present spirit of positive mental attitude (PMA), which he has built into the one-of-a-kind corporate culture at BHG.
A lifelong entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in the healthcare financing field, Bob leverages his proven success to motivate and inspire the BHG team. He invests his time and energy in building up others through consulting and advising on how to achieve goals and maximize non-refundable minutes.
Bob is a passionate philanthropist, dedicated to helping those in need. He created the Kathleen Castro Foundation, in honor of his mother, awarding full tuition to St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., to the children of a selected single mother. He’s made a significant contribution to the Thembelihle School in South Africa and financed a medical missionary trip to northeastern Brazil. Bob’s generous support also spans many local and national causes.
When he isn’t helping create value for his colleagues, employees and community, Bob is focused on his family. He has been happily married for 27 years, with two children and two grandchildren.
Eric Castro co-founded BHG with a deep passion for effective leadership and execution. A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, he quickly learned the importance of a strong leader to guide a motivated group toward significant accomplishments. Eric has leveraged his experience and his knowledge to do just that—guide the team at BHG to break barriers and reach new heights.
Always intrigued by the idea that success is directly correlated to meaningful human interactions and trust, Eric is driven to help people realize their full potential, achieve their goals, and find success in and out of the boardroom.
Having built and led exceptional teams within corporations, Eric thrives on mentoring young entrepreneurs and aspiring business leaders. His fierce belief in putting quality into every aspect of life has not only helped shape his perspective and his approach, but also has skyrocketed BHG into the industry leader that it is today.
Eric treasures time with his wife of 24 years and their two daughters, who motivate and inspire him daily with their creativity and talents.
