Hi, I'm Marv.

I joined Larson Gross in 1983 and have been a partner of the firm since 1994. I’ve previously served as Larson Gross’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. Today, I sit on the firm’s Governance Committee.

As a Certified Financial Planner, I am the firm’s champion for financial planning and work closely with individuals to chart a course to their future success. I work with individuals and multi-generational family groups on estate planning, retirement planning and financial planning.

Additionally, I’ve spent my entire career working with businesses on tax planning, ownership transition, strategic planning and management facilitation. My client base has spanned a variety of industries, including agriculture and construction.

I’ve been actively involved in a variety of community groups for many years. I currently serve as the Board Chair for Kidstown International, an organization that cares for orphaned and neglected children by supporting children’s homes that improve quality of life and educational opportunities in a Christ-centered environment. I am a past board member of the Northwest Washington Fair and serve on the Interstate Committee of the Patterned Speed Horse Association.

Me and my wife, Linda, have three grown children and five grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my horses, competing in barrel racing and leading Cowboy Church — a group of horse-lovers who come together for weekly informal church service.
