Chris Fontana is the co-founder of Florida Medical Advisors and has always felt a calling to the financial services industry. Chris began his career in 1998 in mortgage banking and over the next several years he built a highly successful practice. While mortgage banking was rewarding and challenging, Chris felt compelled to step into a more central role for his clients. This led Chris to begin a mission to provide comprehensive planning for his clients to help maximize their financial futures. It was around that time that he realized his love of working with medical professionals and decided to specialize his practice to meet the UNIQUE needs of this community.
Today, Chris is a frequent guest speaker and educator to the medical, surgical, veterinary and dental training and residency programs throughout the entire state of Florida. Chris loves being able to reach his clients as they enter their working careers so he can help them establish great financial habits early in life.
In addition to providing sound financial advice, few things bring more enjoyment to Chris than connecting people and building teams. While attending medical conventions, events and other speaking engagements over the years, Chris has developed a network of professionals who all support the needs and desires of the Florida medical community so he can continue to grow as a resource for his clients.
A native of Pittsburgh, PA, Chris has lived in the Tampa Bay area for over 20 years since graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Chris married his college sweetheart Kathy in 1996 and now their family includes 4 daughters, Kathryn, Sarah, Alessia and Emmy.
A lifelong learner, in his free time Chris enjoys reading books and listening to podcasts on his favorite subjects such as leadership, biohacking, intentional living and philosophy/world-views.
With 4 daughters ranging from college-aged to 1st grade, he and his family enjoy spending time together playing board games, watching movies and going to Disney!
