Randall T. Gerber
Founder & Principal / Financial Advisor, RJFS
When Randy founded Gerber, llc, he had a clear vision for who we would be: a true partner to first generation entrepreneurs.
As a first generation entrepreneur himself, Randy knew others like him needed a different kind of partner. He knew they were driven to succeed not just in one, but in all parts of their lives. He saw them as the world's leaders and creators—with limitless potential to improve the lives of others.
And that's how Randy discovered his WHY for founding Gerber. He envisioned a place where first-generation entrepreneurs would find more than financial advice. They'd find a launch pad for their ideas and aspirations. Guidance for integrating and achieving all their connected goals: life, business and finance. And inspiration for paying their success forward.
That's exactly the company Randy has been leading ever since. His greatest passion is working hand-in-hand with Gerber's clients to understand what they want out of life, and then putting holistic wealth management plans in place designed to help make it happen.
Randy is a graduate of The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business. He has formal training in investment fiduciary responsibility, and has been recognized as an outstanding financial advisor by Raymond James Financial Services each year since 1999. Currently a member of Raymond James Financial Services Leaders Council, Randy has also been a part of the Executive Council for five years, the Leader's Council for seven, and a two year member of the Chairman’s Council.*
Randy's passion for making a difference in people's lives reaches beyond the office, too—inspiring his volunteer efforts with the Columbus Chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization.
The rest of Randy’s time goes to his other joys—the first of which is his family. He loves to create special experiences for them, from traveling to Greece to hosting Daddy Date Night for his kids in Columbus. Next to being with family, few things rank higher on Randy’s list than rooting for the Buckeyes from the tailgate he’s shared with his college buddies since 1986, working on his golf game during the summer and perfecting his downhill skiing skills in the winter.
