Brad Rempe, CFP®, AIF®, is a Lead Advisor with Foster Group, and is passionate about serving our clients by helping them accomplish the things that are most important to them. Brad’s desire to ask the questions that really matter contributes to his ability to help clients live and work with intentionality.
Brad earned his undergraduate degree in Accounting from Central College in 1994, passed the Uniform Certified Public Accounting exam in 1995, and in May 2010 earned the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation.
Prior to joining Foster Group in April of 2007, Brad held various corporate finance roles with The Quaker Oats Company (Shiremanstown, PA & St. Joseph, MO), Barilla America (Ames, IA), and Maytag/Whirlpool Corporation (Newton, IA), most recently as the Director of Finance for Whirlpool’s Hoover Floorcare division.
As the youngest of seven children growing up on a dairy farm near Pella, Iowa, I was raised to put my foundation in faith, to value the gift of family and to pursue God’s purpose for my life. These values remain important to me and are ones I hope to pass on to my own children. Regarding Foster Group, one of the things I am most thankful for is to be able to live each of these values every day and be surrounded by people who affirm and aspire to the same things.
While I love what I do at Foster Group, when I pull out of the lot at night I can’t wait to get home to my wife Annie; and our three kids, Grace, Sam and Joey. Youth sports, church activities, and watching the Chicago Cubs are some of our favorite pastimes.
Some of my recent favorite reads:
- “Moneyball,” by Michael Lewis; a fascinating look into the world of professional baseball.
- “Good to Great,” by Jim Collins; a very well-known business book. This book posits the factors that enabled some good companies to become great companies. It’s an interesting read with some very good food for thought for business leaders.
- “Seabiscuit,” by Laura Hillenbrand; very entertaining and extremely well-written.
