PAUL GEISEL - Dip FP, CFP (C DEC), Accredited Aged Care Adviser
Aged Care Specialist

With over 30 years of diverse industry experience - across the Finance Sector including Financial Planning and Aged Care - we were delighted to welcome Paul to our team, in June 2018.

Having previously run an Aged Care business in Brisbane, Paul’s established network will help Sage extend their already successful services, south of the Sunshine Coast and beyond.

Having experienced the aged care journey - but sadly the loss, of his own parents, and parents-in-law - Paul brings sincerity, good humour, and a genuine desire to ensure every aged care transition, is successful, simple, and achieves peace of mind.

Currently residing in the Samford Valley, Paul loves the country life but equally values his city know-how.

Married to Peta for the past 40 years, Paul values relationships and the power of family; he is a devoted father, as well as a grandparent to his two grandchildren.
