John Paul Organ, CFP®
Paul founded Marathon Financial Services to help clients reach for their long term goals. As he became more involved with running, it became obvious to him how similar his profession was with his passion as both take preparation, training and perseverance. With his background in financial planning, community service and coaching, Paul has a wealth of experience that enables him to assist individuals and small business owners.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University with a B.S. degree in math, Paul worked in campus ministry where he acquired the skills of listening and advising. He then was a founder and Executive Director of Cornerstone Community School where he excelled in leading and planning. Paul brought these skills and experiences into the financial planning arena. Since then he furthered his education by acquiring the CFP® designation.
Paul assisted as a running coach for Roosevelt High School in Kent, Ohio and competes himself in races from 800m to the marathon. At an 800m race in July 2007, his time of 2:11.0 qualified him as an All American in the age 45-49 category. He qualified to run in the Boston Marathon in his first attempt at that distance.
