The drive to help others is what led Thaddeus to join the Renaissance Financial team. While working as a research technician at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, he focused on helping others through science. At the same time, he built strong relationships with his friends at Renaissance Financial, where he saw a close-knit team assisting each client in their quest for financial freedom. This was a pivotal time for Thaddeus as he decided to transition out of the science world and into a career that would allow him to interact with clients every day, helping them build a solid foundation for the future of their family or their business.

Thaddeus brings his passion to a variety of clients. In his experience, he has seen that it is rewarding to help everyone, from individuals to families, or from budding professionals to established business owners. For him, the interaction with each client is a unique puzzle where he must analyze, develop, and in the end strive for his or her ultimate goal, whatever that might be. The thrill of watching a young family buy their first house is an extraordinary experience, as is guiding a retired couple into the golden years. No matter what the goal is, Thaddeus and the team at Renaissance Financial are here to help.

For Thaddeus, the path to Renaissance Financial was an interesting one. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences and a minor in chemistry from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. While working in his dream industry by conducting research in cardiac immunology, he discovered his true passion was to work directly with people and help make a difference in their lives. He then went on to attain his Life, Accident, and Health Insurance Agent license, as well as FINRA Series 7 and 66 registrations. Thaddeus first joined Renaissance Financial as a friend. Now the firm is pleased to have him as part of the team.

Thaddeus’s desire to help others and give back goes beyond the office. He is a proud representative of the Missouri Botanical Garden Corporate Council and also makes extensive efforts to encourage St. Louis startups by helping entrepreneurs turn their expertise into a business through his work with the St. Louis Startup Ambassadors. Thaddeus is also a supporter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and their Out of the Darkness Community Walk events. From mountain biking to skiing to snorkeling, Thaddeus is always on the move and ready to take on the next adventure. He grew up in Brookfield, a suburb of Chicago, and although he visits often, he now calls St. Louis home with his wife Abbey.
