Stuart Gertman is a Co-Founder of One Seven. With nearly 30 years of experience, he has earned the reputation for providing highly customized advice, investment solutions, and wealth management services to high net worth individuals, multi-generational families and small business owners. But for Stuart, the real reward is in developing longstanding relationships with each one of his clients. What he enjoys most is learning about their hopes and dreams for the future, providing clients with a trusted relationship and comfort level to make decisions together. In the end, Stuart sees each client as a friend for whom he wants to do the best he can, and not let them down. Outside the office, Stuart enjoys riding horses and playing the banjo, both of which allow him to clear his head, develop new skills, and relax. Today, he and his wife, Marian, enjoy sharing time between their homes in Novelty, Ohio, and Aiken, South Carolina.
