Clinton Smith and his award-winning client service is the driving force responsible for the continuous growth of GCES. Behind the wheel of that force is Clinton Smith, CEO of Government & Civil Employee Services, LLC.

With a background rich in hospitality and technology, a ‘Client First’ approach has always been at the core of his accomplishments. Clinton defines his success by the success of those around him, a measurement comprised of both individual and shared achievements experienced by his clients and the team that he and Galen have built together.

The expansion of GCES afforded this powerful duo the opportunity to help even more clients. A dream come true, which resulted in adding to their thriving team. Devoted to cultivating a culture that shares the same passion and expertise that GCES was built upon, Clinton is always hands-on throughout the training process.

In addition to marketing, branding, and managing the daily operations with clients and partners, Clint’s dedication to talent recruitment has paid off! GCES proudly continues to grow their team into a collection of licensed professionals joining them on the crusade to revolutionize how state, federal, and postal employees protect their retirement through a guaranteed income.

This assembly of like-minded team members is never satisfied with the status quo. GCES is dedicated to continued learning and improvement to ensure that the client experience is always top-notch. Clint holds a Pennsylvania Life, Health & Annuity License. He places a high value on maintaining a full understanding of the ever-changing regulations, policies, and procedures handed down by the federal government.

GCES stresses the importance of staying up to date on the ever-changing benefits to clients; however, these changes are vaguely mass communicated publicly to the audience that is impacted. Clint and the team make it a top priority to effectively educate their clients on a continuous basis, ensuring that they understand how changes impact them personally.

Clinton’s passion for giving back in his professional life is mirrored in his personal life as well. Philanthropic at heart, he enjoys volunteering his time to numerous charities in the Pennsylvania area.

In addition to charity work, Clinton is dedicated to community involvement and outreach. For several years, he has served on the Board of Directors for both the Indiana County Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Indiana County(UWIC). In 2019, he further deepened his involvement by accepting the honor of the 2019 Campaign Chairman for UWIC. He was nominated for the Male Civic Leader award in September of 2019 and was honored as one of the PA Business Central’s Foremost Under 40. Though his spare time is limited, Clinton is a firm believer that you must make the time for the important things or get used to making excuses for missing out on your life. At the top of his list is his family (including his six dogs) and maintaining a clean-living, healthy lifestyle. Gifted with a naturally high level of energy, Clint focuses that abundance of energy into daily workouts that keep his body and mind in peak condition to continuously perform at the highest level for his team and his clients.

The always giving Clint, offers three pieces of advice to his future clients:

1)   Call ahead for an appointment

2)   Worry about happiness…we’ll take care of the rest

3)   Don’t worry…everyone wishes that they found us sooner
