Garrett McGovern

Garrett moved to Chicago in 2017 after working remotely for Barrington Wealth Management (BWM) for over a year. He graduated from Fordham University in New York, and applies much of what he learned to how he interacts with and serves the families of BWM. 

Garrett’s responsibilities at BWM center around the family. Participating in family meetings, preparing meeting materials, walking clients through the various online portals and planning sites as well as constant communication via email or over the phone are just some of his responsibilities. 

Barrington Wealth Management is centered on providing its clients with the best overall experience and that includes providing information on a consistent and relevant basis. 

Garrett sees the value in having an office that is extremely family focused. This is why he, Jim and the rest of the team work together to make sure their approach is one that encompasses the whole family. 

Furthermore, service is something Garrett has always been passionate about. When he lived in New York City, he was active within Hope for New York ( and the Bowery Mission (, and now he is a board member of an organization that was founded by the Quigley family called Hope’s In ( 

He runs the Hope’s IN Internship program alongside the CEO & Director of Hope’s In. This program is comprised of high school students from the Barrington/Chicagoland area who want to grow as humanitarian leaders. 

He comes from a family of seven so serving and caring for others is something he has a lot of experience with. 

Garrett is honored to be serving the clients of Barrington Wealth Management and hopes to continue to do so in the future. Below are a couple of Garrett’s favorite articles posted on the Barrington Wealth Management website:
