  • Jack McGrath, CFP®

    Jack founded Strategic Financial Services in 1993, and has over 30 years of industry experience. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts/Boston. Jack launched his career in financial services in 1986 after serving as a teacher in the Rockland Public Schools for twelve years. As his practice has grown, helping people accumulate wealth so they can live the retirement life of their dreams has become Jack’s focus and passion.

    As a Certified Financial Planner Practitioner, Jack is committed to an objective and unbiased process.  Jack knows that most clients are concerned about two things:  their financial future and choosing the right advisor.  He says, “I have two goals for each and every client:  I want them to accumulate wealth in a prudent manner before they retire so they have the freedom to do what they want to do after they retire, and I want to be the kind of advisor whose ethics and integrity when working with clients are beyond reproach.”

    In 2013 Jack transitioned half of his practice to his two partners Michael and Regina Quirk. In 2016 he completed his final transition and began his next chapter in his life. Jack remains involved in a consultative role in the branch office in Florida.
