Vance B Gray, Jr., CFP®

Vance truly loves his job and appreciates knowing that his work provides significant value to his clients.

Vance is, of course, a loyal New England sports fan who longs for the days of the Larry Bird era. If he wasn’t the expert financial advisor as we know him today, he’d be a travel enthusiast, writing about all the best places to play golf in the sun.

Credentials: Vance is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP).
