Meet Our Team
Claude J. Gubler
“I love my profession,” Claude exclaims almost daily to the Periope team as he meets new people and goes through the process of discovering their hopes, desires, and dreams for their financial future—and then working closely with our clients, putting a plan in place to achieve those dreams. Claude J. Gubler is the founder and owner of Periope, L.C. Claude is a native of St. George, UT. He grew up in sandtown, which is the northwest part of St. George. His dad was a rancher and farmer, so Claude learned the value of hard work and has applied that work ethic that he learned from his dad into building Periope, LC over the last 15 years.
While growing up in St. George, Claude attended and graduated from Dixie High School. After graduating high school, Claude served a 2 year mission in Pusan, Korea, where he learned the Korean language. Upon returning from his mission, he attended and graduated from Dixie College with an Associate of Science degree. He then moved on and studied at Brigham Young University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a minor in the Korean language.
Claude is married to Aimee and has 5 children, Ellie, Hunter, Madison, Brynlee and Ava. Claude enjoys the outdoors. In the summer, he loves being on the lake with his family and friends. And during the fall, you will find him out in the hills hunting or fishing. He also enjoys working out and running. Claude is a member of the Southern Utah Chapter of Safari Club International where he serves as the Pathfinder chairman. Each year, he is privileged to take a young hunter that has a life threatening disease or illness on an once-in-a-lifetime hunt. Claude is also a founding member of the Academy of Preferred Financial Advisors.
