A Message for Marilyn Gunther


Described as a steel hand in a velvet glove, Center for Financial Planning founding partner Marilyn Gunther, CFP® has officially transitioned into the retired life. But the mark she left on The Center is almost tangible. In this tribute video, team members call Marilyn professional, committed, passionate and inspirational. And Marilyn’s daughters Lisa and Karen Gunther share their perspective on growing up with a woman who was establishing what would become a nationally recognized business in a very male-dominated field.


Marilyn set an example for The Center team that we are dedicated to upholding. Her success, her impact on the financial planning community, and her trail blazing attitude continue to inspire us daily. We miss seeing Marilyn in the office, and we hear the same from her clients, but the principles she established will follow us into the future.
