About Bill Fecht

I’ve spent my entire 21 year career in financial services and have been with Thrivent Financial for the last 14 years. Investment management has always been a passion of mine and I enjoy using that knowledge to help my clients reach their goal of a secure retirement. It is gratifying to build relationships and be a resource for them on their journey. My wife, Becky, and I live in Avon with our two children, Samantha and Will. I am a graduate of Lutheran High School West in Rocky River and Miami University in Oxford, OH. I spend much of my free time coaching and watching youth sports, as well as attending horse shows.
