Alex Gunter

Alex Gunter joined the team at Raymond James Financial in Oil City in 2020 as a Financial Advisor, AAMS.

After growing up in Clarion and attending Clarion University, Alex moved to Pittsburgh for five years. After the birth of his son early this year, his family moved back to the area and are now settled in Kennerdell.

Besides his bachelor’s degree, Alex holds licenses for the Financial Advising Series 7 and 66, PA Life, and Health and Accident Insurance. He also gained a designation of Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS) in early 2021. At his father’s advisory firm, where he is now employed, Alex hopes to help grow and expand so that they may help more community members gain financial peace of mind.

As for his personal goals, Alex wants to provide a comfortable life for his family, while helping to impact the community in a positive manner.

Alex and his wife, Kara, have held health and fitness near and dear to their hearts, making it one of their favorite hobbies/aspects of their lifestyle. They enjoy being outdoors with their son and two dogs, as well as spending as much time with family as possible.

Besides being closer to family, the gorgeous scenery, mountains, and nature in Venango County is what truly attracted Alex’s family here.

“We also love supporting local small businesses and restaurants,” Alex said. “And we appreciate the people. After working in Pittsburgh for five years, the people here are vastly different in how they are towards one another. We just love that hometown feel.”

Alex looks forward to building a network of colleagues and hopefully friends, and we’re excited to get to know him more!
