        Whether you’re embarking on one of life’s most sacred unions, preparing for the birth of your child, coping with the loss of a loved one, or going through the hardship of a divorce - situations that shape our clients lives daily - experience with these profound life events provides a sense of a comfort when making financial decisions. As a partner and Senior Vice President within Alpha Legacy Wealth Management (ALWM), Gabe has worked tirelessly on delivering an approach with his clients that has built trust and relatability. His ability to connect with his clients through his own life’s experiences to help them navigate through their own has proven to be invaluable.

        Entering the Financial Services industry amidst the financial crisis of 2008. From there, he drew on his background in client service, relationship management, and financial planning to help his client’s reach their financial goals.

        Shortly before graduating from Monmouth University in 2008 with a B.S. in Finance, Gabe obtained his Series 7 and Series 63. These tools afforded Gabe the opportunity to join Merrill Lynch as a Registered Client Service Associate alongside Nancy Heiser, handling all of her client’s service and wealth management needs. A few short years later in 2013, he joined UBS Private Wealth Management as a Wealth Strategy Associate where he handled the financial planning needs of our Ultra High Net Worth clients.

        In 2015, Gabe expanded his reach even further by taking over the Northern New Jersey Market as UBS’s Wealth Planning Analyst. In this role, he was able to obtain his Certified Financial Planner™ designation. Later on in 2017, Gabe would join Alice Anselmo and Heather Meade to create the AMC Wealth Consulting Group.

        The culmination of all of these relationships resulted in the merger with Alpha Legacy Wealth Management in January 2019. Operating out of  New York City and New Jersey, ALWM prides itself on its service model and the diversity it offers to its clients.
