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.

Personal Thoughts

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.
