Senior Partner and Financial Advisor Joseph “Joe” Leonczyk is a lifelong resident of Ludlow, MA. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1980 with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. His innate desire to help people and his thirst for learning led him to his initial career as a RN. Working in the Cardiac Care unit of Wing Memorial Hospital proved to be rewarding and undoubtedly meaningful when he met his future wife Maryann, now married 35 years, in that very hospital.
Inspired by his father, a master electrician with hands of steel, Joe built his own home and discovered his love of crafting. With a wife to support and three small mouths to feed, Joe took a risk and started his own bathroom remodeling business while he continued to work part time as a RN. As a small business owner, Joe began to realize the importance of financial planning and developed a passion for the stock market. 10 years later, he put down his tools, closed his home office and transitioned one last time to Financial Advisor. Joe’s ability to wear several hats as nurse, small business owner and family man, demonstrated his innate entrepreneurial yet compassionate spirit.
From there Joe joined EQ Financial Consultants in 1997 and shifted to Palmer Goodell Financial Group, LLC in 1999 with Ed Sokolowski and Chuck Myers. Together they quickly realized the need to provide a truly comprehensive approach to financial planning and opened the doors of Pioneer Valley Financial Group, LLC, in March 2002. Today, Joe is recognized as a President’s Club advisor for 2014; an elite distinction recognizing only the most esteemed financial advisors based on annual production rankings among Commonwealth’s 1,487 financial advisors.
