About us


Gary Bowyer


Gary started his own Financial Planning firm in 1985 and worked with many clients throughout his career. In 2010, Gary sold his company to a larger RIA, but continued to work for several more years. In 2010, Gary began mentoring Ben Hockema and transitioning his long-time clients to him. After fully retiring in 2017, Gary continued to provide experience and support to Ben and jumped at the chance to continue in a more formal manner, buying into Illuminate Wealth Management from the start. Gary’s role is to continue to provide experience, perspective and in-depth research to Illuminate Wealth Management behind the scenes.
