Kevin has been involved in the financial services industry since 2005. Prior to joining Savant, he was a senior financial advisor with an Illinois based wealth management and financial planning firm. There, he was a member of the firm’s financial planning team and specialized in the development and implementation of wealth management strategies for his clients. In addition, Kevin’s experience includes trading listed equities on the New York and NASDAQ stock exchanges for a firm based in Chicago. There he was a partner, senior equity trader, and trainer and was responsible for managing a team of traders.
Kevin graduated from Indiana University where he earned a degree in public finance. He earned a Certificate in Financial Planning from Northwestern University and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. He is a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), the national Financial Planning Association (FPA), and the Financial Planning Association of Illinois Chapter.
Kevin serves as a director on the board and past treasurer of the St. Charles Education Foundation and as an elected trustee of the board for the DuPage Foundation, is a member of its executive committee, and chair of its investment committee. He is an active member of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Legacy Partners Council, the DuPage Foundation Next Generation Initiative, and the DuPage Estate Planning Council. He was recognized by the Kane County Chronicle as a 2017 “Best Under 40” recipient, an award given to Kane County professionals under the age of 40 who have made significant contributions to their profession, company, and community.
Kevin lives in St. Charles, IL with his wife Jennifer and their four children, Tyler, Emma, Anna, and Michael. During his free time, he enjoys coaching his children in their extracurricular activities, golfing, fishing, and traveling.
I especially enjoy helping clients when they are going through major transitions in their lives. It’s truly an honor to be the trusted advisor who they can lean on to help them make wise and informed financial decisions.
