Gary began his career as a real estate entrepreneur in the 1980’s. Following the successful management of a 45-agent real estate office, he expanded his advisory capacity to the investment securities industry.
Gary gained invaluable experience in the financial field working for some of the largest brokerage companies in the world today. Gary was first hired by Merrill Lynch as a financial consultant, and was later recruited as a financial advisor by PaineWebber, which was subsequently taken over by UBS.
Gary’s business philosophy is built on solid private client relationships that are based on high levels of trust, and individually customized service. As the corporate landscape evolved, Gary became increasingly convinced that the most effective way to successfully apply this philosophy was to depart from the mega-size firms and form his own private practice. And so after 17 years in the investment management business, Gary founded “Packnick Financial, LLC” in 2007.
Gary and his wife Mary have four children and reside in Connecticut. They enjoy backpacking in New England’s White Mountains, and actively support an inter-faith Christian retreat center in New Hampshire. Locally they serve as volunteer ministers in their church, teaching Sunday Children’s Church classes. Gary also writes and records music, and has lead Worship Services in various venues. They enjoy life, and helping others do the same!
