Our Founder

Sam Granato

July 8, 1934 - February 27, 2017

Sam started his career in financial services after teaching and coaching in the Moreland School District for 17 years. Investing was a field that he was passionate about and he enjoyed getting others excited about planning and saving for retirement. Many of his clients became his good friends and, in line with his Italian Heritage, he treated people like family. Loyalty to those he cared about was one of his many strengths.

As an active participant in his community, Sam genuinely enjoyed keeping in close contact with everyone. He had an engaging personality and a unique perspective on life. He loved to learn new things and liked to share jokes, advice, stories, great meals and driving directions. Sam’s spirit of joy and helpfulness carries on through all of the lives he touched as a teacher, coach, financial advisor, friend and relative.

Inspired by Sam, LeAlta Financial Group strives to provide a high level of care and service to our clients. It is from this inspiration that we selected our business name. Lealtà is the Italian translation of loyalty and we believe that it is the perfect nod to a kind and wonderful man. Saluti!

Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.”
