• Gavin McLay

    Financial Planning Consultant

Gavin McLay joined Hearn Hoyt Ramsey Wealth Management in August of 2020 as an Intern, meanwhile attending Florida State University in Tallahassee. Gavin graduated in April of 2021 with Bachelor of Science Degrees in both Finance & Marketing. (Yes, we are a practice divided with both a Gator and a Seminole on the team!)

Gavin has since obtained his Series 7 General Securities License and is now in the role of Financial Planning Consultant. Gavin manages client and institutional reporting, discretionary model research reports, paraplanning, goal planning, and assists clients with trading, account transfers, money movement, research requests, paperwork, and various other service related matters.

Born and raised in our very own St. Petersburg, Gavin grew up fishing, attained his Captains license through the United States Coast Guard at the age of 18, and began a successful fishing charter service. He has fished at the competitive level in many tournaments in the Tampa Bay area, as well as the Florida Keys, Bahamas, and Dominican Republic. Gavin enjoys being an active member of the St. Petersburg Rotary, where he helps give back to the community by volunteering for numerous nonprofits such as the Tampa Bay Watch, Special Olympics, and Sol Relief. He recently returned from a project in the Bahamas where he helped repair a small children’s school that was severely damaged by hurricane Dorian.

When he isn’t assisting the team or serving the community, you will most likely find Gavin on the water chasing anything from Redfish to Blue Marlin.
