The Legacy Planning Group Story


Legacy Planning Group's story began in 1987. Our founder, Patrick J. Cloutier, was just entering the life insurance business as a 23-year-old BBA financial planning graduate.

After receiving his securities licenses a few years later, Patrick made the decision that he wanted to work primarily in the area of personal retirement planning for the mass affluent. On February 1st, 1998; Patrick opened Legacy Planning Group in historic downtown McKinney, Texas.

Our Values

Not long after, Matthew Gournay joined the Legacy Planning Group team in 1999. Patrick and Matt were both BBA financial planning graduates from the University of North Texas and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity brothers. 

Over the past two decades, Patrick and Matt have worked together as expense sharing partners.
