GROWTH FROM EXPERIENCE

Capital Financial Group, Inc. (CFG) is a team of individuals that together have over 100 years of industry experience. Founded in 1982, by Dennis Leonida, CFG has always functioned under The Golden Rule: "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you" (Matthew 7:12). While this principle may seem simplistic, in the financial services industry, CFG was way ahead of its time. 

CFG continues to grow through selfless, tireless support of our clients. You can learn more about CFG's philosophy here.

Dennis Leonida

CLU®, ChFC®

Founder & President, CFG

Financial Advisor, RJFS

Originally from Hutchinson, Kansas, Dennis moved to Colorado with his family when he was 15 years old. He played college baseball at the University of Northern Colorado, competing in the College World Series in 1974. 

Dennis began his career in the financial services industry in 1976, ultimately starting his own firm, Capital Financial Group, Inc. in 1989. Since then, both of his sons, Alex and Cole, have joined him in the family business.

With his wife, Sandra, Denny loves to entertain family and friends over a glass of wine and one of his legendary grilled steaks. Still a huge sports fan, Denny spends much of his free time on the golf course or at a ball game.

Alexander Leonida

CFP®, CIMA® 

Chief Investment & Compliance Officer, CFG

Branch Manager & Financial Advisor, RJFS

Born and raised in Centennial, Colorado, Alex was an All-State baseball player. While he did not play baseball in college, he did follow in his father's footsteps, attending the University of Northern Colorado.

Shortly after graduation, Alex accepted an opportunity to begin his career with his father at CFG. In 2013, he earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation, and followed that with his Certified Investment Management Analyst designation in 2018.

Alex is happily married to Raegen, and they are proud parents to Evangeline and Knox. He is a competitive amateur golfer, an opinionated blogger, and a grill master, just like his old man.

John Guigli

CLU®, ChFC®

Investment Advisor Representative, CFG

Financial Advisor, RJFS

Affectionately known in the office as the pride of Trinidad, John grew up in the small southern Colorado town. He ventured north to Colorado State University, graduating with a Business Administration degree with a concentration in finance in 1973. 

John wasted little time beginning in the financial services industry in 1976. He then earned his Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant designations in 1984 and 1985 respectively. 

In 2016, after over three decades of battling, John lost his wife, Denise, to Multiple Sclerosis. John has 2 lovely daughters, Jennifer and Rebecca. Today, John proudly occupies the coveted fourth slot in the CFG 4-man scramble squad, primarily for entertainment purposes.

Cole Leonida

CFP®, CKA®

Investment Advisor Representative, CFG 

Financial Advisor, RJFS

Cole is a Colorado native, and the youngest member of the Leonida family. He followed the family pedigree, excelling in baseball. He attended Georgia Tech, where he was a team captain and eventually a draft pick of the Washington Nationals in 2010.

Cole spent 6 years playing minor league baseball before entering the financial services industry in 2017. He joined the CFG team in the spring of 2018. Cole is in charge of business development and marketing for CFG.

Cole, his lovely wife Lora, and son Levi, live with their two miniature Australian Shepherds, Bane and Apollo. He is in a distant third in the family grilling hierarchy, but his prowess in World Long Drive competitions more than compensates for that masculinity deficit.

Leah Kautz

Operations Manager

Leah has lived in Littleton, Colorado since she was a child. After graduating from Arapahoe Community College, Leah worked as a certified pharmacy technician before joining CFG in 2016. 

A family-first woman, Leah is wife to Kyle and mother to Teagan and Asher. There is nothing she would rather do than gather up the family, jump in the Subaru, and head to the mountains. 

When a trip to the slopes just isn't an option, Leah can be found doing crafts with her kids, learning to garden at their new home (in Littleton, of course), or showing off her supreme sewing skills. But arguably her most impressive hobby? Extreme bargain shopping.
