Chris Gammon, CFA®, CFP®

Founding Partner

Chris Gammon believes that clients are attracted to partner with him on their personal finances because of the simple fact he is one who exemplifies Verum Partners – sincere care and compassion, undergirded by complete integrity and sheer competence. Chris aims to be Encourager-in-Chief to his clients and their families. His foremost allegiance is to the team at Verum Partners, without whom true partnership with clients is inauthentic and unsustainable. Chris enjoys taking care of closely-held business owners (past and present), his fellows in the professions (such as finance, education, engineering, medicine, law, and consulting), and like-minded stewards and servant leaders, because he and they proudly serve others both inside and outside our career lives. Chris brings nearly four decades of broad and deep experiences and accomplishments to bear in the service of Verum Partners’ colleagues and clients.

In addition to his responsibilities at Verum Partners, Chris and his wife have two adult daughters who are a delight to encourage and watch excel. Chris is a member and Elder in Myers Park Presbyterian Church, active in both traditional and contemporary music ministry.
