Al Gortmaker

Vice President – Investments

My background:

Since graduating from Cornerstone University in 1999, my focus has always been on serving people. My first career brought me into the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. For the past six years, I have been focused on serving clients in the financial industry. I joined Benjamin F Edwards in 2023 and feel very blessed to love what I do and build a career that matters. My goal has always been to put the client first and work with people who value proactive service and partnership while helping them plan their financial future. My partner Megan Adams and I have worked together for the past four years and thrive on serving our clients as our most important goal. We look forward to an opportunity to meet with you and start your financial planning today.

I have been married to Bethany for 24 years and have four children, Aiden, 20, Gracie,18, Lily,16, and Myla, 14. Outside the office, our family loves spending time together outdoors, camping, and playing basketball. I love coaching and finding time to be around the game of basketball as well as various outdoor sports such as fishing, golfing and hunting.
