Gary Hansen has been in the financial services industry since 1980 and has served thousands of customers across the western United States.
Gary has hosted and appeared as a guest speaker on several radio shows, and has been featured in various newspaper and magazine articles over the years. He is dedicated to continually furthering his expertise by regularly attending training sessions around the country with some of the nation’s top financial experts and Social Security advisors.

When not working, Gary enjoys spending time with his family – his wife of over 40 years, and his 7 children and 16 grandchildren (and counting). He is an avid racquetball player but also enjoys cycling, golfing, and Taekwon-Do. Gary also spends many hours each week in charitable activities – volunteering for his church, spending time in the local schools educating young people about financial literacy, and (probably his favorite) driving John Deere tractors on a welfare farm in Greeley.
Gary’s personal motto is two-fold:
Jaris has been with Retirement Planning Center since 2001. He manages the day-to-day operations of the business and helps direct the company’s long-term strategic planning and marketing efforts. Jaris and his wife live in Greeley, Colorado with their 5 children and an ever-growing assortment of farm animals. He enjoys playing the piano, spending time with his family, and serving in his church and community. He loves spending time as a Junior Achievement volunteer, teaching principles of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and free enterprise to local school students, where he has taught dozens of classes and interacted with over 1,200 students over the past 12 years. Jaris is a Series 65 Investment Advisor Representative.
