After graduating from the University of Connecticut and the New York University Graduate School of Business, Martin was ready to begin his career. With a heart for helping people and building relationships, and being one to never shy away from a challenge, Martin entered the financial planning business in 1967.
Right from the start, Martin worked hard to provide the very best service for his clients to help them achieve their financial goals. He also went on to achieve professional success that included serving as chairman of the Executive Council and chairman of the Broker’s Council of Drexel Burnham. Martin also holds Series 1, 4, 5, 12, 15, 40, and 63 licenses.
Over the years, Martin has amassed a tremendous amount of financial planning and investment knowledge. Today, after 51 years in business, when most would be satisfied with a lifetime of success, Martin is still looking out for his clients’ best interests.
As involved as he is in his endeavors to help his clients plan for their futures, Martin is just as involved in service to the community. He was named one of the Ronald McDonald House 12 Good Men in 1997 and has served a total of 13 years in leadership positions at Mt. Sinai Hospital, including being named chairman of the Board of Trustees in April 2001. He was a member of the National Parkinson’s Executive Committee, and is involved in the Alzheimer’s Care Center and the Diabetes Research Center. Martin is also an honoree of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, and a very active member of his Synagogue.
Martin and his wife, Gladys, reside in Miami Beach, Florida, and have three children, one of which, Sonya Gelb Choeff, is his partner in the financial planning business.
