Client Centered

Chris Garrido, a Tampa native, is a proud graduate of the University of Florida and former president of the Tampa Gator Club. Chris believes in servant leadership and remains heavily involved with several boards and non-profits in his community.

Chris is passionate about building healthy financial habits in the lives of his clients, allowing them to achieve financial balance and freedom. Opposed to the antiquated ways of his profession, Chris brings an uncommon, common-sense approach to finance. Over the past decade, he has assisted hundreds of families and business owners in protecting, accumulating and growing their wealth. During that same period, Chris’ tireless work has garnered several accolades including Client Builder Awards, Top of the Class Awards and 2019 selection to Guardian’s Leadership Institute.

As a husband to Felicia, father to two sons (Donovan and Adrian) and best friend to Peytin the Black Lab, free time is limited. However, Chris enjoys coaching youth sports, cheering for the Gators, Lightning and Bucs, fishing, and backyard BBQ. Chris' dream in retirement is to travel the country with Felicia and participate in the competitive BBQ circuit.
