Gerald S. Connolly, CFP®

Vice President

Jerry is a CFP® and competitive ballroom dancer.

When Grimes & Company became an independent advisory firm in 1999, Jerry was appointed Vice President with his primary role continuing to be working with clients and their investing and financial planning objectives.

Jerry served as Chief Compliance Officer where he implemented and enforced a process driven culture for the firm before training Michael Davide to succeed him in in 2016. Now Jerry devotes his full attention to working with clients, many of whom are now approaching or already in retirement. He particularly enjoys helping clients during the transition years as they begin the process of leaving their working days behind and prepare for an entirely new chapter in their lives. Jerry is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and an active member of The Financial Planning Association of Massachusetts.

Jerry has been in the financial services industry since graduating from Northeastern University in 1973 with a BS degree in Business Administration. After working with the Paul Revere Companies after graduation, he moved on to join Grimes Financial Group in 1986, where he began his rewarding career in assisting clients with achieving their goals and objectives leading toward their eventual retirement years.

When not working with clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Veronica, vacationing in the state of Maine. Jerry and his wife are also active competitive ballroom dancers and enjoy participating in various competitive events around the country.
