About Theodore Swiontek

Why Thrivent?

I came to Thrivent when my dad started getting sick and needed more help with basic living. He was in and out of the hospital and then had to enter a nursing home. I quickly realized that my dad didn’t have a firm financial plan, and I felt overwhelmed! I never wanted that to happen to another family, so I became a financial advisor. When I started walking through the process with Thrivent, I could see that this place was truly unique. I was treated like a family member, welcomed and given tools & support. Thrivent is a special place to work, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else! 

About Theo

I grew up in a big family with 9 siblings. Today, I have 2 stepdaughters, 1 son, 1 grandson and a brand new puppy (I’d be happy to show you pictures of all of them).  I love spending time outside, hunting, fishing, and working on my 1920s 7-acre farmstead remodel. I also enjoy cooking, especially with a dark beer or glass of red wine in my hand! Before coming to Thrivent, I spent 30 years in the food industry, 15 of which I owned a catering company.
