Our Story

About Us

Bo began his financial services career in 1997, shortly after his father suddenly passed away of a stroke. Bo’s father was not properly prepared financially or insured. Seeing what his mother struggled through financially as a result, it inspired Bo to set a clear objective to help not only his mother financially, but to build a business where he could educate others on the importance of proper financial planning. He started Gibbs Financial Group in 2009 and it is locally owned and operated in Alpharetta, Georgia.
