The Power of a Dream

Clint Guernsey
Founder

In 1958, Clinton Charles Guernsey (b.1920 – d.2009) had a simple dream to work in an environment where he could wear a suit and tie, instead of digging around in the filthy dregs of sewer pipes and muddy ditches. Since that time, his dream has transformed this company into what it is today - a thriving financial firm spanning over 60 years and four generations.

"When all is said and done, in the end, there are only two things that matter: your faith and your last name." - Clint Guernsey

 

Clint served honorably in the Army’s 156th Infantry Regiment during World War II. His commitment to our country reflected in his commitment to responsible financial work in his community. That commitment of hard, honest work remains, to this day, a consistent foundation of the firm.
