Peter Leonczyk, AIF®
Financial Advisor Peter Leonczyk is a lifelong resident of Ludlow, MA. He graduated from Westfield State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. Before graduating, Peter took advantage of an internship at The Walt Disney Company where he learned what it takes to “make dreams come true”. The program taught Peter the complexities of Resort and Restaurant Management at the highest level, and further developed his already well-established customer service skills.
Peter sought a career which would allow him to impact people’s lives on a deeper level, and he joined PV Financial Group in early 2013. Since joining the firm Peter has earned his AIF® Designation, expanding his skills on retirement plans and retirement plan management. Facilitated by his genuine sense of humor, grounded in trust and friendship, Peter has a natural ability to develop a strong connection with each one of his clients. While the firm and it’s professional nature may come across to some as inaccessible, Peter is passionate about breaking the stigma and focuses on providing quality financial planning and advice to hardworking individuals and families of all income levels in our community. Peter has fostered relationships in the community through his work as an active member of the Rotary Club of Ludlow, where he is able to network with fellow local Rotarians and business owners while doing good in the community.
In his free time, you might find Peter combining his love for the outdoors and athletics by squeezing in 9 holes in an afternoon round of golf, always ready to grip it and rip it out of the box. While thrilled by the long drive, Peter is still searching for his first hole-in-one. During the summer, Peter plays in the Western Mass Wooden Bat League where he takes the mound and enjoys trying to strike out batters with his curveball. Baseball carries sentimental value for Peter, as he and his brother grew up playing together coached by their Dad. Once again, they join together on the field as a tough pitcher-catcher duo.
Peter recently stepped down from coaching the Ludlow Lions Youth Football team, a year after he helped lead the 7th and 8th grade team to an undefeated championship. While retired from coaching, (for now) Peter remains invested in his former players lives and continues to bond with the players by not only attending their high school games, but serving as a mentor as they head into college. Acting on his passion for supporting the youth in our community, Peter is on the advisory board for Ludlow CARES Coalition, a community run non-profit organization addressing issues relating to our community, our youth, our residents and our businesses. Additionally, Peter is involved in Junior Achievement, a volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade program that fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills with the use of experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential.
Peter and his wife Jessica live in Ludlow with their daughter Emma. He and his family enjoy spending time on the Connecticut River where they fish, paddle board, and barbeque. Displaying his love for cooking, you’ll likely find Peter with a spatula in hand while manning the grill, serving his friends and family.
