Our Executive Leadership
At American Hartford Gold, we are proud of our executive leadership’s dedication to providing reliable services to clients as well as support to the workforce. With over a decade of experience in the precious metals industry, our Chief Executive Officer, Sanford Mann, is well-known for his professionalism and work ethics. Our President, Scott Gerlis, brings over a decade of retail Gold and Silver experience. He has made it a mission of his life to educate and guide people about how they can protect their retirement savings by investing in precious metals.
Sanford Mann: Chief Executive Officer
American Hartford Gold was built under Sanford’s simple credo that he learned from his father at a young age: provide the customer with unlimited education and an honest deal. Putting this philosophy into practice has led to an A+ customer satisfaction rating and made American Hartford Gold one of the fastest-growing precious metals dealers in the country.
Raised in a close-knit farm family, Sanford developed a strong work ethic and sense of community at an early age. He studied Economics at Connecticut State University and served in various senior financial management positions in New York City before moving out west to follow an entrepreneurial calling. Sanford now resides with his family in Santa Monica.
He truly believes that customers are family and success comes only when you commit to providing superior service in every transaction.
In his free time, Sanford volunteers at several non-profits, pursues an active lifestyle and sits on various boards. He’s a dog lover and can often be found at the office or the beach with his boxer “Cookie” by his side.
As Chief Executive Officer of American Hartford Gold, Sanford is responsible for the company’s overall strategic direction in the gold industry, attracting the most ethical and knowledgeable talent in the business, and maintaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
Scott Gerlis: President
Scott is a proud Los Angeles native who owes his life-long love of precious metals to his father Harold, an avid coin collector who taught him to appreciate history, economics, and community. He learned that one cannot have true wealth without owning physical precious metals and made it part of his life’s mission to educate the world about how to protect retirement savings with safe-haven assets.
Working side by side with Sanford Mann, Scott started American Hartford Gold and shares Mann’s singular focus on customer service, high ethical standards and making the company a great place to work and do business with.
As President of American Hartford Gold, Scott is responsible for the company’s operations and back office as well as building and leading the company’s team of precious metals specialists.
In addition to founding American Hartford Gold, Scott has owned and operated successful retail businesses, invested in real estate, and is involved in his community and non-profit organizations. He resides with his wife and family in Los Angeles.
