GFM Founder Announces Retirement

Founder Greg Galecki

Greg Galecki started the business that became Galecki Financial Management in August 1990. Over the last 30+ years, Greg became a leader in the financial planning industry, a radio personality (on a show that lends our newsletter its name!), and grew GFM into the Fee-Only Wealth Management firm it is today.

Greg was one of the first advisors in the State of Indiana to adopt the Fee-Only approach as opposed to commission-based compensation. That mentality of always putting the best interests of our clients ahead of our own, has been ingrained into every advisor, employee, and intern that has walked through our doors over the years. Under Greg’s leadership, GFM has grown to have the strong reputation it has today.

With that we announce that Greg will be retiring at the end of 2021.

Throughout Greg’s time growing GFM, he always made the succession of GFM a priority. He brought on a team of other Financial Planners to not only help grow the firm, but ensure that his clients would be taken care of well after his retirement.

Today GFM has grown to include six other Financial Planners and Shareholders aside from Greg: AT Kohout, Brady McArdle, Melanie Colwell, Kevin Chandler, Andy Young, and Chloe Blythe. AT became a shareholder in 2006, Brady and Melanie in 2011, and Kevin, Andy, and Chloe in 2019. As of January 1, 2022, the remaining six shareholders will be taking the reigns as full owners of the business.

There is no one quite like Greg Galecki. His leadership, knowledge, humor, and world-class metaphors are one-of kind. We are thrilled for Greg as he transitions to this next stage of his life but will of course miss his quick wit around the office.

AT, Brady, Melanie, Kevin, Andy, and Chloe are all looking forward to carrying the mission and core values that Greg instilled in us for years to come. We will continue growing the legacy and story of Galecki Financial Management for another 30+ years.
