Chad started in the industry with Joe Bernardi of Bernardi Investment Services in August of 1998. Growing up in Worthington, Iowa, both Chad and his wife Becca wanted to move back from the Chicagoland area and start building a family closer to home. It was a great move to a great area and working with Joe really helped Chad grow his investment practice.
Chad graduated from Loras College in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Finance. He was also active in many areas including a 4-yr baseball player, class treasurer, and homecoming committee chairperson. His greatest accomplishment: he met his wife of 19 years at Loras College.
Chad now resides in Galena in the home he and his wife bought in 1999. They have four kids: Evan (16), Elli (14), Claire (10), and Cole (7). They are very active in both sports and theatre. Chad coaches and attends as many activities as possible.
