Gregory S. De Jong ,
CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, CRPS®
Greg advises individual clients, small business owners, and retirement plan trustees. He has been involved in the financial services industry since 1986. Greg began his financial services career with marketing positions at two national broker/dealer firms. In 1990 he relocated his family to the Chicago suburbs where he established a practice focused on financial planning, investments, and insurance. He served as the founder and president of Paragon Advisors from 1995 until its acquisition by Savant in 2013.
Greg earned a bachelor of arts degree from Calvin College. He holds leadership positions in his local church and serves on his denomination’s national Committee on Ministerial Care as well as its Church Loan Fund. Greg is a woodworking enthusiast and amateur videographer. He and his wife Kathy enjoy traveling and spending time with their children and grandchildren.
While I have always enjoyed being a source of trusted advice, having the full capabilities of Savant backing me up since 2014 is making this last chapter of my career immensely satisfying. Working with bright younger advisors is invigorating and gives me great confidence that our clients will be well served long after I've faded from the scene.
