As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Mr. Bargerstock has established himself as a distinguished figure in the field of financial planning, particularly known for his specialization in federal employee benefits and retirement planning. As the president and founder of Government & Civil Employee Services LLC (GCES), which he established in 2009, he has dedicated over a decade to guiding clients toward a secure retirement and recently earned the Financial Planner of the Year Award in 2023 for his work. He travels to meet with clients, primarily in the eastern region of the United States, covering all states east of the Mississippi River. Such an approach to client meetings, both online and in-person, underscores his commitment to accessibility and personalized service.

Prior to founding GCES, Mr. Bargerstock expanded his expertise in financial services through roles at Prudential Financial, where he worked as a financial professional from 2014 to 2015, and as a national marketer focusing on long-term care at American Life & Health Group between 2007 to 2009, following the receipt of his insurance license in 2007, after initially working for RxAmerica LLC. Outside of his financial profession, his career is marked by his service in the U.S. Army, an experience that instilled in him values of discipline and dedication that have been pivotal in his professional journey. Between 2002 and 2005, Mr. Bargerstock's military service not only honed his leadership skills but also contributed to his profound understanding of the importance of financial security for service members and their families.

For his service and contributions, Mr. Bargerstock was honored with a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. Outside of his military experience and professional learning, he holds a bachelor's degree in audio engineering and production from the Institute of Audio Research. As he progressed in his career, veering toward finance, he earned certifications such as the Life, Health and Annuity Insurance License along with Series 63 and Series 65 Security Licenses. These qualifications have not only enriched his expertise but also underscore his commitment to continuous learning—a principle he credits for his achievements.

Outside of his primary professional focus, Mr. Bargerstock co-authored "The Story of Carl 'N' Barb" along with his spouse, Clinton Smith, showcasing his versatility and creativity beyond the financial sector. Additionally, he is committed to community involvement through his participation in civic-minded organizations. Looking forward, Mr. Bargerstock aims to expand GCES to achieve national recognition.
