Martin Day, CFP
President, Financial Advisor
Martin is the President and Chief Steward at Box Financial Advisors. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from West Texas A&M University, where he was also a four year starter on the Buffalo soccer team.
Martin’s industry experience in financial planning began in 1997 when he worked for what was then First Dallas Securities in downtown Dallas. From there he moved to H.D. Vest in 1998 and worked as a Wealth Management Specialist. In 1999, Martin passed the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ exam, one of the highest regarded and most recognized certifications available in the financial planning industry. In addition, Martin has obtained the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations from The American College in Pennsylvania. Martin has also received the Certified Kingdom Advisor designation granted to financial professionals who have met high standards in training, integrity, character and competence.
When Wells Fargo acquired H.D. Vest in 2001, Martin stayed on and worked in the Advisory Services area, where he concentrated on portfolio management and design. During his final years at Wells Fargo he focused on advanced planning in the estate and business planning areas. The opportunity to hone his skills and acquire knowledge from an industry titan like Wells Fargo for almost a decade was extremely valuable to Martin’s development. In 2010 Martin prayerfully decided to leave corporate America, taking his vast education and experience with him to launch Box Financial Advisors.
Marsha is Martin’s bride of over two decades, and together they have four children: boy/girl twins born in 2005, Brexton and Makeelie, their daughter Brenley came along 5 years later, and finally their daughter Kenzington was born in 2012. He and Marsha are very active and involved at Gateway Church, and together they serve on the altar ministry team. Spending time with family and leading himself and others to be better disciples of Jesus Christ are his favorite hobbies.
