Thad S. Pugmire

After a career of over forty years, Thad Pugmire retired in 2023 to spend more time with his wife Judy, their children, and their many grandchildren. Prior to his retirement, he served as President of Financial Planning Consultants.

 As a native of San Diego, Thad was educated in the San Diego school system and graduated from San Diego State University in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Working his way through college, he began his business career as a real estate agent specializing in residential and investment properties. In 1981, he became a second-generation financial planner by following in the footsteps of his father, one of the original founders of Financial Planning Consultants.

 Throughout his career, Thad emphasized the importance of financial education. He felt that educated investors were more likely to be successful in reaching their retirement goals. To that end, Thad conducted numerous public and privately sponsored financial seminars. He also taught investment and financial planning classes as an instructor for the San Diego Community College District. Thad leaves behind a legacy of diligent client service and education that will not soon be forgotten.
