Our story

In 2008, a group of financial advisors in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, formed Thrivent’s West Shore Team. It was renamed Apex Financial Group in 2019 when Troy Keesling, Gary Keesling, Tim Lukasek, Ryan Paape and Cam Seidl came together with a vision to better serve clients and the community by utilizing each other’s God-given talents.
