Humble Beginnings

 

A man who would prove himself to be one of the the most respected, decorated, and accomplished professionals in the financial advising industry began his lifelong journey in a rather unlikely place: the small industrial town of Bridgeport, Connecticut. A self proclaimed “small town kid”, Laurence Plummer Sr carries with him everyday the values of consistent hard work, unfailing determination, and an inflexible ethical code that has been instilled within him while being raised by his pastoral parents. These qualities never faded, and served as the foundation of an award winning and barrier- breaking practice that has blossomed into an industry leader over time. For over 30 years, Plummer Financial Services, LLC has blossomed into business whose influence has impacted the lives of thousands of clients around the country.

With more than six thousand diverse clients, including professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, pastors, gospel-recording artists, entrepreneurs, and families, Plummer Financial Services has prospered tremendously through Laurence Plummer’s experience and knowledge as an experienced financial advisor. Laurence’s expertise and time-forged acumen in the realm of finance has provided a strong foundation to the lives of thousands of clients and their families.

Plummer Financial Services provides its clients with a wide range of services and products, which include strategies for investments, risk management, tax planning strategies, estate planning strategies, and educational funding.

Laurence is a life member of the Million Dollar Round Table, Top of the Table, and has also qualified for the MDRT for 28 cumulative years. He holds a FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) Series 6 and Series 63 securities licenses as well as life/health insurance licenses. He is a member of the National Association of Life Underwriters and the IAFP. In 1996, he was also given the distinctive honor of being named “Who’s Who in Finance and Industry”.

In 1996, Laurence reached a historic achievement by becoming the very first African American to earn the highly coveted “Marketing Representative of the Year” honor. In June of 1998, he was inducted into Life Membership in the John Hancock Financial Network President’s Cabinet, a designated position which requires a representative to be qualified as a top John Hancock Financial Network performer for ten years. He stands as the first African American to have earned Life Membership in the President’s Cabinet. In 1999, Laurence received recognition for John Hancock Financial Network’s Chairman’s Council, which recognizes representatives who are among the top John Hancock Financial Network performers in the nation. Only nine representatives qualified for the Chairman’s Council in 1999, and within those select few, he was the only African American to have earned this award in the company. Laurence was also inducted into John Hancock’s “Hall of Fame” on Tuesday April 9th, 2002.

Laurence has been recognized as the #1 sales representative for the organization in 2008, 2010, and 2013. In addition to this, he has been named as one of the leading Platinum-level producers at John Hancock Financial Network for over 30 qualifying years. He was recognized for this level of consistent success as part of John Hancock Financial Network’s ACE program. The name ACE (Achieving Client Excellence) aligns with John Hancock Financial network’s core belief that sales excellence is a direct reflection of the level of professionalism, respect, integrity, and real value delivered to clients every day.

Laurence is married to his wife Nadine, and has four beautiful children, Letitia, Lauretta, L.V., and Laurenz. He is a highly dedicated Dallas Cowboys fan, and enjoys spending valuable time with his family.

Laurence Plummer Sr. will continue to provide structure, guidance, and over three decades of experiential knowledge to each of his clients in order to aid them in reaching their lifelong financial dreams.
