“Confidence, persistence, integrity are necessary qualities for life and running a business,” says Gary M. Stanislawski, CERTIFIED FINANICAL PLANNER Practitioner and president of Regent Financial Services, Inc.
He credits the U.S. Air Force for instilling those qualities and more in him and setting him on his path to teaching and financial planning.
Stanislawski founded Regent Financial Services, Inc., in 2002, with the goal of assisting clients in every aspect of their financial lives. Today, he uses the problem-solving and leadership skills and genuine interest in others that he developed during his military career to help his clients retire with confidence.
Stanislawski, an Oregon native, attended Oregon State University on a four-year ROTC scholarship, earning his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
Upon graduation, he entered the Air Force and earned his wings as a pilot in 1984. He flew for eight years, flying such planes as the B-52 and the B-1 Bomber.
After leaving the Air Force, he moved to Tulsa where he received his Master of Arts in Christian Education at Oral Roberts University.
In 2008, Stanislawski was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate and serves as the Chairman of the Education Committee, among others. He is the past president of the Financial Planning Association of Tulsa. He has also served his community on the Jenks Public School Foundation Board and the Planned Giving Committee of the Parent Child Center.
He and his wife, Dayna, have been married for over 35 years and have two children.
“I founded Regent Financial Services with the goal to provide the most personal service available,” says Stanislawski.
With 13 employees, the team at Regent Financial has a combined 80 years of financial services experience, working with individuals and businesses in investment, retirement, and estate planning services.
Stanislawski specifically chose Denise A. Lant, CFP®, and Kraig McFarland, RFC®, CRPC®, for their high ethical standards, specialized experience, and their years of service in the industry, he notes.
The Regent Financial team is comprised of three advisors and a support staff of 10, including a Chartered Financial Analyst and a Portfolio Manager.
“Having a support staff of 10 to three advisors allows us to give first class customer service and attention to detail,” Stanislawski says. “While the company has grown to be a successful Registered Investment Advisory firm, one thing has remained constant: our commitment to the highest level of personal service.”
Stanislawski encourages parents to teach their children about money and to begin to save. When working with new families, Regent Financial lays the foundation by encouraging families to take a realistic view of their savings and debt picture to see if they will be able to pursue their long-term goals.
Regent Financial also offers free monthly educational classes to its clients and the community.
“The Regent team makes every effort to develop portfolios that aim to manage volatility and seeks to maximize results in both good and bad markets, thereby providing our clients with financial confidence, security and stability,” he says.
With his decades of financial planning experience under his belt, Stanislawski can confidently say, “Determining the best route into retirement for our clients is as satisfying as flying a jet aircraft.”
