From 2006 until Thomas Gackle’s resignation in 2015, Thomas Gackle was licensed with Lowell & Company, Inc. According to FINRA’s records, Thomas Gackle was permitted to resign from Lowell & Company, Inc. on April 30, 2015. Lowell & Company, Inc. reported to FINRA that Thomas Gackle’s resignation related to allegations that Thomas Gackle failed to disclose material events either prior to association with Lowell & Company, Inc. or subsequent to Thomas Gackle’s hiring. Lowell & Company, Inc. reported to FINRA that Lowell & Company, Inc. was given a copy of an order issued by the Kansas Bar, detailing Thomas Gackle’s indefinite suspension from practicing law in the State of Kansas. Lowell & Company, Inc. reported to FINRA that based on that information, it appears that Thomas Gackle failed to truthfully answer yes on U-4 question 14F. Additionally, Lowell & Company, Inc. reported to FINRA that it is possible Thomas Gackle did not answer yes to questions 14A.1(A) & (B) also, and may have had to respond with a yes to those questions as well.
Subsequent to Thomas Gackle’s resignation from Lowell & Company, Inc., FINRA investigated Thomas Gackle and brought a disciplinary action against Thomas Gackle. Thomas Gackle was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on July 20, 2016. FINRA reports that Thomas Gackle consented to the sanction, and to the entry of findings that Thomas Gackle refused to appear for FINRA-requested-on-the-record testimony during the course of an investigation into Thomas Gackle’s failure to disclose to Lowell & Company, Inc. and on Thomas Gackle’s Form U4 that Thomas Gackle had been suspended from the practice of law by the States of Missouri and Kansas.
FINRA also reports that an arbitration claim was filed involving Thomas Gackle’s conduct with Lowell & Company, Inc., alleging that Thomas Gackle sold a client a non-traded REIT, and that the client did not have the $100,000 of income that Thomas Gackle stated on the suitability form. This arbitration claim settled for $750,000.
