According to FINRA, Eric William Kuchel (CRD #4118500, Yorba Linda, California) was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. The sanction was based on findings that Kuchel allegedly failed to provide complete testimony to FINRA during the course of an investigation into mutual fund transactions that occurred at his member firm. The findings stated that Kuchel did not substantially comply with the request for his testimony and failed to appear for his rescheduled testimony. Purportedly, Kuchel’s delays, and ultimate failure to provide his testimony, impeded FINRA’s investigation.
For FINRA’s full findings see FINRA Case #2015047966701.
According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck, Kuchel was registered with LPL Financial in Brea, CA from 11/2014 – 11/2015 and with Crown Capital Securities in Brea, CA from 07/2007 – 11/2014.
