John Straley

Managing Director

With extensive knowledge running the gamut of financial planning, John passes his expertise to clients so they can better understand their own insurance programs.

Through education and straightforward communication, John Straley motivates people to develop plans that help them reach their financial goals. John won’t dress things up in industry terms. He’ll talk to you like a regular guy. Yes, he has the knowledge, but he also works on sharing that knowledge on as a student of the world-renowned Strategic Coach® program designed for successful entrepreneurs. Teaching and guiding business owners and their families to more strategic retirements, estates and contingency planning has been the foundation for John’s career and achievements. 

You may have seen John in Chicago Magazine where he’s been named Five Star Wealth Manager five times. Or maybe you’ve heard his name from a handful of other industry accolades several firms have given him throughout his career. John is also a principal member of First Financial Resources, a professional organization comprised of strategic problem solvers for high net worth individuals as well as public and privately held companies. 

John graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce. You can find him now living in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois with his wife and three children.
