Craig Lewis Barred by FINRA
Craig Edward Lewis, based on the aforementioned behavior, allegedly violated FINRA Rules and hence has been barred by FINRA, according to the aforementioned AWC presently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.
In March of 2016, Valic allegedly terminated its affiliation with Lewis and he has not been employed in the industry since, the AWC states.
Lewis started his securities career in 1981 at A.G. Edwards and reportedly worked at eight securities firms before joining Valic in 2012, the AWC notes.
Lewis is currently not associated with a FINRA member firm, has no prior disciplinary history, and although Lewis is not currently associated with a FINRA member firm or registered with FINRA, he is subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction pursuant to FINRA’s By-Laws, the AWC notes.
Finally one should also note that, according to the AWC, Craig Edward Lewis neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
