President and CEO


Greg is president and CEO of Hinkson Wealth Management. He began his career in 1991 with a nationwide financial services company. The company was known for its excellent training program and investment products. In 1993, he was recognized by the company as the No. 1 representative in the state of Michigan.

The following year, he started an independent firm that allowed him to fully represent his clients’ interests rather than the interests of a broker/dealer.

He currently holds FINRA Series 6, 7, and 63 securities registrations through Commonwealth Financial Network®. He is an investment adviser representative of Commonwealth and also holds insurance licenses for life, long-term care, and variable contracts.

In addition to these licenses and a business degree from Penn State University, Greg is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional who has taught university courses as an adjunct professor. He has been quoted by Morningstar Advisor magazine and named a Five Star Wealth Manager* seven years in a row by Hour Detroit Magazine. He was featured in the Wall Street Journal as one of the Five Star Wealth Managers you need to know and featured in Forbes Magazine as Michigan Financial Leader.

Greg is married to Valerie and is the proud father of four children. They live in Oakland Township, Michigan, and are members of the Kensington Community Church. In his spare time, he enjoys reading about a variety of topics. In addition to finance, Greg enjoys books about history, religion, politics, and holistic health. He also enjoys working out, skiing, and traveling.
