Romy founded Gingras Global, LLC in February of 2011. Dreams and visions of sustainability began fueling the effort back in 2006 when she started to view global outreach with the eyeglasses of business and financial planning. Initially, taking an observant role in the outreach, Romy quickly realized that there was a need for unity of efforts; unity both locally and globally to harness resources and talents. In April of 2012, she sold Gingras Financial and left an industry after 23 years of practice. Romy now uses her strategic planning and gifts of connectivity for a higher calling and purpose.
Romy has spent many years consulting large financial organizations on profitability and development along with the entrepreneurial start-ups. After 25 years her leadership is concise and effective. Romy has started many businesses along the way from hobbies-turned-business to operations that were sold in the marketplace and exist today. She talks often of the failures that provided the “skin-your-knees” education you can only acquire by experiencing failure. Her 25 years of consulting in the financial world brought a wide variety of knowledge on subjects such as tax, legal, cash flow planning, business operations for both the profit and non-profit sectors.
Business mission travel has brought opportunities to Romy she never expected. She found she had a passion for all different people groups and cultures. Along the way, she discovered that business can bring unity AND solutions to world issues.
Skills of connectivity come naturally to Romy as she seemingly connects resources effortlessly.
Romy obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Michigan University in 1990. She then went on to obtain a CLU designation from the American College, and a Certified Financial Planning designation from the College of Financial Planning.
Along with strong connectivity gifts Romy also has the organizational & analytical strength to pull off large scaled events or launch businesses from concept to 5 year sustainable cash flow. Her ability to stand in the storm when others take shelter pushes the envelope of tenacity.
