Hunter Gimbel

CEO/Managing Partner

Hunter Gimbel, CEO and Managing Partner at Gaber Group, is an integral part of the firm’s internal dynamic. Hunter’s day-to-day responsibilities include managing the firm’s strategic approach to achieve the overall objective, which is to deliver the best results for our clients in the advanced estate planning industry.

Hunter continues to lay the foundation for the success of the firm. He has a leadership style that breeds confidence, even when explaining his knowledge of complex estate conservation and taxation. His exceptional ability at building client relationships has been attributed to his knowledge of estate planning, life insurance, and his ability to deliver more than what was promised.

In the financial services sector since 2005, Hunter previously worked for RFS for seven years, where he handled the firm’s exclusive clientele of physicians. Hunter also has extensive experience in dealing with Wall Street professionals, including those who work at private equity firms, hedge funds, and investment banks.

With all of his experience, plus a strong belief in continuity and family, working with the Gaber Group came as a natural fit for Hunter. With specialties in life insurance trusts to ultra-high net worth clients requiring more aggressive tax oriented strategies, wealth transfer, multi-generational/dynastic planning, Hunter helps clients visualize how estate planning is very unique to the individual and the families they leave behind.

Unbeknownst to Hunter, the impetus that would leave a strong impact and lead to his current success and career choice was already in place. The early passing of Hunter’s grandfather left him with firsthand experience of the challenges faced by family members left behind. Although very young in age, Hunter’s desire to help families never faltered. He felt it is what his grandfather would have wanted if given the opportunity.

Hunter also has taken an active role with the non-profit organization, All Stars Project, where he mentors inner-city students who may want a career in finance in their future.

A native of New York, Hunter graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Indiana University Bloomington. He is happily married to his wife Samantha.  They have a daughter Andie and two sons Jack & Alex. He resides in Oyster Bay.
