Greg Zott is the founder and president of GNZ Financial. After completing his undergraduate degree in 1977, Greg worked for the John Hancock Insurance Company as an agent and then staff manager.
Those years were valuable in two ways:
- Learning the basic principles of financial planning.
- Finding out the limitations of a one company Advisor.
Able to take what he learned from his experience with a big corporation and combine it with the benefits offered by being an independent financial advisor, Greg started GNZ Financial in January 1988. In 2019, GNZ’s growth allowed a re-location to the “Top of Troy” building in the heart of downtown Troy. In 2023, GNZ celebrated 35 years in business.
To have a role in people’s lives where he helps them pursue financial goals and gain confidence in their journey through life is a blessing to Greg. Being able to help people achieve their dreams and make a living at the same time is a consistently rewarding experience.
Greg has been married to his wife Therese for 46 years and has five sons and five grandchildren. His leisure time is filled with reading, traveling, church activities, and plenty of togetherness with his family.
