Pat Grenier, Principal

RR, CFP®, MBA

Pat is all about family—and that is the way she approaches each of her clients, as if they are a member of her family.

A trailblazer, big-picture thinker, and fierce advocate for her clients, Pat gets the job done and the details right. She has a can-do, will-do determination that is infectious. Ask her advice, and you will find that she is a sensitive listener, a thoughtful problem-solver, a careful planner, and relentless fact-checker. These are skills she developed at a very young age, as the family interpreter and liaison for her large Ecuadorean family. Her passions run to South American cooking, gardening, and large family get-togethers at her home (think 35 for dinner).

Pat began her career working for large financial groups, where she came to believe that every client is best served with deeply personalized service—a passion that drove her to become an independent financial advisor in 1990 and develop her “Hearts and Mind Approach.” 

“Our job is to help people blend their personalities, lifestyles, and goals into a viable plan that makes them feel safe, comfortable, and secure. We iron out the idiosyncrasies and weed through all of the information to know what is appropriate for each client based on their circumstances.”

Through speaking engagements and regular articles in local and national publications, she has provided advice to women navigating financial planning. She is also involved in the community and has been a tireless community advocate. She is on the board of the Mason Wright Senior Living Community, and has served on many boards, including the Women’s Partnership of the Springfield Chamber of Commerce, the Boy Scouts of America, and the YWCA of Springfield.

Pat has more than 30 years of experience as an investment advisor and holds a CFP® designation as well as MBA and BSBA degrees from Western New England University. She has two children and lives in East Longmeadow, MA, with her husband Larry.

I treat every person who walks through our door like an extension of my family, and am a supportive confidante and advocate for all my clients at all stages of their lives. It is profoundly important to me that all people meet their life’s goals and live their lives feeling safe and secure.”

Michael Simpson

Financial Advisor-Director of Research​

In an era of information overload and sensationalized news, interpreting the market and economic data is critical to making the right investment and financial decisions for your future.

Through my past work with national investment firms and my position today with Grenier Financial Advisors, I have developed a deep understanding of investment analysis and the capital markets that guide our clients through the tricky financial planning process.

Coupled with Pat Grenier’s Hearts and Minds Approach, I take both the long view and the short view when it comes to financial planning, thinking about who our clients are today and where they’ll want to be in the future.  In fact, I often like to quote the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky who said, “A good hockey player plays the puck; a great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.”

Larry Grenier

Director of Marketing

Larry-Grenier-Director-of-Marketing-Grenier-Financial-Advisors

With over 30 years of experience as an executive management leader in Massachusetts and CEO in his family’s photography studio business, Larry’s results-driven approach to building and growing businesses is a perfect match for his role as Director of Marketing at Grenier Financial Advisors. Like his wife Pat, Larry is dedicated to family and knows the importance of keeping clients informed and engaged in their financial futures. His marketing efforts bring clients into the fold with informative financial news and updates while showcasing the good work of the whole Grenier team. 

Larry is the recipient of the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, from the Better Business Bureau and SBA Jeffrey A. Butland Family-Owned Business Award. He was named Business Person of the Year: Greater Holyoke Chamber of Commerce (2005) and was inducted to the Western Massachusetts Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame at STCC.

What’s his secret to success?
“I’ve always said it’s important to work with people who treat other people well.”

Lindsey Arventos

Financial Planning Associate

lindsey-arventos-financial-planning-associate-grenier-financial-advisors

As the Financial Planning Associate, I am the one who makes sure all the financial planning and review items are taken care of. I work closely with Pat and our clients to ensure that the financial planning process is as easy as possible from start to finish. I also assist with researching life insurance and annuity products to make sure our clients have the best coverage to fit their individual needs. My 13 years on the Grenier Financial team has given me the experience and knowledge I need to help Pat guide our clients through important milestones and decisions.

“I love what I do because it keeps me close to our clients on a day-to-day basis and because I know I’m helping them with the little things that keep their journey moving forward.”

Kim Galinski

Client Services Administrator and Sales Assistant

“Quality and timeliness of service has always been important to me.” As the Client Services Administrator I enjoy assisting our clients with opening new accounts and servicing their existing accounts. No matter how big or small the task is I am always here to help. Our clients can count on me. Being in the financial services industry for the past 18 years and the last 7 years working with Pat, has helped me to be able to assist the clients with all of their account servicing needs.

Abby Nelson

Client Services Associate

Talking to clients and making sure they have everything they need is my number one goal. I am the bridge between our clients and the office, whether they need an appointment or any other information, and welcoming them when we meet virtually or in person. My second goal is to help make Pat’s and the rest of our team’s jobs easier.

A problem-solver at heart, I strive to boost efficiency wherever I can. That can mean improving office processes or performing data analysis so that the office runs smoothly, which ultimately helps us better meet our client’s needs. A transplant from Chicago, I graduated from the University of Massachusetts and worked for several years in non-profit management and special education. I am so glad to be a part of the Grenier Financial team.
