Gardner Sherrill MBA, CFP®

Founder / President

Welcome! I have spent over 25 years helping families live off and enhance their nest-eggs throughout their retirement. Much of my early experience was spent as a Wealth Manager at some of the largest firms in the nation. I greatly appreciate all I learned in those formative years but ultimately, I wanted a practice where I could focus more on my clients and less on corporate mandates.

In 2012, I launched Sherrill Wealth Management so I could work with my clients on the same side of the table to achieve what’s important and beneficial to them. It is extremely rewarding to help my clients lead the lives they desire knowing that their financial assets are following a solid, well-thought-out plan.

When I’m not working on behalf of my clients you can find me with my wife (Dannie) and our sons (R.G. and Charlie), perfecting my tennis swing, or hunting down the next best tuna taco.
