After majoring in Business Administration at West Chester State University, Garry Madaline was a highly decorated law enforcement officer in Philadelphia. After being wounded in the line of duty, he retired from law enforcement and began a very successful retirement planning career with The Equitable Life Company in 1979.
Over his 35-plus year career, Garry has mentored under many of the great industry retirement minds including Ed Slott, Dave Vick and David McKnight, just to name a few. In 1999, he authored the highly acclaimed book “Making the Most of Your Retirement.” Realizing that retirement plans offered by most firms would be inadequate for the long retirements faced by the baby boomer generation, Garry created the C.O.R.E (Client Oriented Retirement Engineering) Program. He is a sought after speaker, educator and innovator in the ever-changing retirement landscape.
After falling in love with the Valley of the Sun, Garry sold his Philadelphia practice, which continues today, and started a new practice in Arizona. Residing in Rio Verde, Garry and his lovely wife, Denise, are very active in their community. They have 5 wonderful children and 5 grandchildren. Garry’s best day is when he helps someone new enhance their financial future.
