Craig Layman, CFP®


Craig Layman, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner is principal and founder of Layman Financial, based in Belchertown MA.

Craig has lived his entire adult life in western Massachusetts, graduating cum laude from University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Economics degree.  He returned to UMass later in life to study at the business school and earned an MBA.

Craig can pinpoint the beginnings of his interests in finance to conversations with his grandfather when he was about 6 years old.  His grandpa showed him how to look up stock quotes in the newspaper and Craig found the price movements and dividend payments fascinating.

After college, Craig held several positions with insurance and investment firms building relationships with clients and eventually managing an office of registered representatives for a New York Stock Exchange member firm.  Craig moved on from there to start an investment program for a local credit union and eventually became the regional Program Manager for that credit union's broker-dealer.

After 30 plus years in the industry, Craig decided to leave the management hassles to others and focus on the rewarding part of the business, working directly with clients once again.  He continues to reside in Belchertown MA with his wife and several furry friends.  He enjoys helping and serving others using his many years of experience in the industry.
