Congatulations to David Rae, Compete Magazine's Athlete of the Year

From Compete Magazine's profile of their new Athlete of the Year:

Rarely do we picture an athlete on a Compete Magazine cover in a business suit and tie but passionate cyclist and triathlete David Rae, our 2011 Athlete of the Year, is so much more than just a pretty face (and body!).

Graduating from the University of Redlands with degrees in Business and Musical Theatre, David is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) who holds Series 6, 53, 66, and 7 licenses enabling him to advise clients about life, health, disability and longterm care insurance matters. He joined Trilogy Financial Services in January 2003 and by the next year he was promoted and is now vice president of client services. With most of his clients being gay, David is also a designated 0601-aoty-david-rae-suitfinancial planning columnist for Echelon Business Magazine, a gay publication for LGBT professionals, and he has also written for the LA Times, The Advocate, Instinct Magazine, IN Magazine, Frontiers and Bottom Line, among others.

Having grown up with an NFL quarterback for a father, David has certainly had lots of exposure to sports and has tried a variety of them over the years, even football. The closest he comes to that sport, however, is his self-designated title as the “financial quarterback” who offers to lead financial teams to their goals. But David is now leading another team, this time as its captain—Team Popular. The sport that has really hooked David is that of cycling.
