The Eckhardt Group started when spouses Dick and Jan Eckhardt joined Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL) in 1987, serving the local Altamont area. A decade later, their son Ryan joined the family business, adding his expertise in the areas of wealth management and tax strategies. In 2003, Dustin joined the practice, expanding the team’s reach to the Metro East area and developing one of Thrivent’s first actively-managed investment programs. Over the years, The Eckhardt Group has continued to bring on and develop talented professionals each with diverse experience, education, and specialties. Our goal is to help our clients protect who and what is important to them by understanding, educating, empowering, and partnering with them so that they may live abundant and generous lives. The combined resources and access to capital makes it possible to provide our clients with tailored and comprehensive financial services and solutions.
