Garrett S. Hoge

Garrett S. Hoge, CFP®, ChFC®, MS
President and CEO of H Financial Management

After graduating from West Liberty University, Garrett Hoge entered the financial services industry with high expectations and a sense of calling to a profession devoted to helping people succeed financially.  For Garrett, building relationships based on trust and leading H Financial Management for over 40 years was only natural since his family's values in Southwestern Pennsylvania, run deep. John and William Hoge founded and laid out the plans for Washington, PA in 1781 and later generously donated the property where the Washington County Courthouse now stands, and the Immaculate Conception Church and John F. Kennedy Catholic School building is located (the Hoge Memorial is located on Walnut Street in Washington, PA just behind the John F. Kennedy School building).  Continuing the family tradition, Garrett Hoge emphasizes traditional values in his business, and in his everyday life, through diligent work ethics and maintaining a fiduciary standard.

Garrett is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®).  In addition, he has a Masters Degree in Financial Services (MS) focused on Estate Tax Planning. He is a Life and Qualifying Member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT*) the Premier Association of Financial Professionals® and the prestigious Top of the Table (TOT). 

Garrett and his wife Anita have been married for over 45 years and have 3 children (Garrett II, Jessica, and Allison) and 4 grandchildren (Westin, Cora, Mae, and Sasha). In his spare time, Garrett enjoys playing with the grandkids, skiing, golfing, cycling, weightlifting, and swimming.  He is a PSIA-certified ski instructor, a member of Southpointe Golf Club, and a Member/Elder at the Westminster Presbyterian Church.
