Tom Hendershot is the president and founder of Hendershot Financial Group. Tom is passionate about working with his clients at his family-owned and operated firm. Tom loves working with other families in hopes that he can help them build a foundation of support for their family that resembles the one his father built for him and his family. Financial planning is a family affair at Hendershot Financial Group. With nearly fifty years in the financial services industry, Tom feels as though he has never had a job. Instead, he has had a purpose.
He received his BS in Business and Management from The University of Maryland in 1974. It was at UMD in the spring of 1973 that he met the woman he would marry, Nancy, who is Tom’s partner in the firm and in life. His credentials include FINRA Series 7, 24, 63, 65 registrations, and Insurance Licensensure. He is designated as a Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA).
Tom began his career in the financial services industry at the age of 21. He comes from a family that taught him to be of service to his fellow man as he grew up in Warfordsburg, PA. There he enjoyed helping his father in the family-owned car garage and his mother in the town’s post office in his home until he was nine years old. He loved growing up in the small village of Warfordsburg, where the people embodied the saying that “it takes a village to raise a child.”
The Hendershot family is passionate about assisting other families in their financial journey. Tom focuses on building relationships that will last through the generations. His business philosophy is, “Help people, have fun while helping, and success will come.”
