Owner of GL Fisher Capital Management LLC
Gary Fisher is a lifelong Michigan resident, with most spent in Flint and the Flint area. He is a graduate of Flint Central high school, The University of Michigan, and Central Michigan University, and also a member of the Adjunct Faculty at Olivet College.
He’s the owner of GL Fisher Capital Management LLC, a financial planning firm located in the heart of downtown Flint at the historic Mott Foundation Building. Gary moved his office to Flint in the middle of the water crisis as a show of support and loyalty to his hometown, and as a way to be a part of the ongoing revitalization efforts occurring in Flint despite challenging times. He and his wife Tracy also own an art and mural company that has created art all over Michigan, and at local landmarks like Hurley Hospital where Tracy’s imaginative art graces the pediatric ICU, and was the thematic inspiration for the TV show Shark Tank coming to Flint and donating a huge aquarium for Hurley and the Children’s Miracle Network.
His family has nearly 100 years of history in Flint, and with General Motors. A board member of the Genesee County Historical Society, he guides tours of the Durant Dort building, the birthplace of General Motors.
Gary has written and spoken nationally about Flint, and a wide range of other topics. The author of many financial industry guides and training materials, he’s currently writing his first memoir about his hometown and the rich lessons and experiences it offers to Rust Belt denizens, expats, and anyone with an interest in the past, present, and future of American cities, and a desire to make a difference.
