CEO Goldfarb Financial

Jeffrey Goldfarb is founder of Goldfarb Financial. A native of Buffalo, NY, his passion for financial planning began at eight years old where he was captivated by stock market updates delivered in the lobby quotron at Bache & Company.

The image stayed with him – even while attending Boston University’s School of Education and subsequently teaching hearing impaired and autistic children. Jeffrey later returned to Buffalo to follow a career in finance – founding Jeffrey M. Goldfarb & Associates (now Goldfarb Financial) in 1988. He is an active community member with roles including past president and cofounder of Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation and International Institute Board of Directors.
