Garrett is the president of Horizon Planning Group and a skilled financial advisor. As the son of our founder, Gary Holcombe, you might assume that Garrett has always followed in his father’s footsteps, but that’s not the case. He spent much of his 20s ignoring the financial planning advice he’d grown up hearing and made common financial mistakes that often left him in complicated binds. Eventually, however, Garrett began the complex process of learning how to manage his finances better—sparking a passion for helping others do the same.
He received his Bachelor of Science from Kennesaw State University and has since earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation, as well as his Series 7, 63, and 65 securities licenses. More than a financial planner, Garrett takes on the role of teacher and aims to truly educate others on how to improve their lives through financial planning. He takes pride in helping his clients better understand their unique financial situations and providing them with the tools needed to reach their personal goals. Garrett specializes in small business planning and advising small-business owners on their unique financial needs.
Garrett was born and raised here in Cherokee County. He lives in Canton, Georgia, with his wife, Amber and their two children—Samantha and Matthew. Garrett and Amber were one of the first foster homes with Goshen Homes, a foster care agency of Goshen Valley, which specializes in keeping siblings together. They adopted both of their children through the foster care program.
Garrett strongly believes in the value of community and remains active in many local organizations. He is currently an adult leader and the Safety and Training Officer for Sea Scout Ship Southwinds 100, as well as the president of the Cherokee High School Band of Warriors Booster Club. He is also involved with the Woodstock Business Club and is an active member of his local church.
Garrett’s goal is to bring healing to other people’s lives, through his volunteer work and his career as a financial advisor. By helping people gain peace of mind for their financial futures and guiding them to their goals, he hopes to make his community a happier, friendlier, and better place to live.
