Happy Birthday to Our Founder

  Happy Birthday, Kent!


Kent – currently

We want to wish our Founder, Kent Crawford a very Happy Birthday.  Although we won’t call him out on his age publicly,  this guy has been around for awhile.  With over 30 years experience in the industry, Kent has seen quite a few bull and bear markets.

Kent was born and raised in Modesto.  He is the son of a local school principal and music teacher who instilled the value of hard work and discipline in their son.  At a young age, Kent developed his skills as an extremely hard worker.  He worked in his youth as one of the top paperboys in the area.  He also rode his bike for miles to pick berries in the countryside and became a journeyman clerk at local grocery store Raley’s.

Kent circa 1987

After attending Modesto Junior College,  Kent went to Chico State where he met his future wife Lisa in the business fraternity.  After college, Kent started his Financial Planning practice in 1987 with a firm called IDS.  Many of his first clients are still with Kent today.  After IDS, he opened an Edward Jones branch where he worked for more than 20 years!   He then opened his own practice, Granite Wealth Management, in 2011.

Over the years Kent has been heavily involved in the community.  He was the youngest President of Modesto Gateway Rotary where he was involved in projects such as the Virginia Corridor.  Kent has served on the County Board of Retirement and helped develop and grow the Beyer High Booster club.

Today, Kent uses his 30 years experience to help guide clients through their financial life. His practice is centered around integrity, honesty, and service which can be seen with the hundreds of people Kent has helped.

From all of us here at Granite Wealth Management, we wish you a Happy Birthday!
