Gabe Lapito



Gabe began working with the Strategic Retirement Plans team in 2007 and then purchased the company in 2013. Since taking the reins, Gabe has guided the company into steady growth. In fact, Gabe and Strategic Retirement Plans have gained national recognition as an example of successful succession planning (astounding industry norms). In the years since, Gabe has built a new building for SRP on the west end and also hired a new advisor. Now, for the 3rd year in a row, Gabe has been recognized in Forbes Magazine for both Best in State and Top Millennial Financial Advisor.
