About Us

Brian Whitaker

After graduating from Indiana University in December 1999, I began my working life in Dallas, TX as a member of the banking industry. Shortly after that I moved back to the Chicago land area and started a different chapter in my life.  One in which brought me my driving force in life (my daughter).

In February of 2002 I began my career in the financial services industry. I was Rookie of the Year in 2002 with Prudential and have since become an independent financial advisor where I have qualified for the Million Dollar Round Table on multiple occasions.  I was invited to attend a three day meeting with members of the Wisconsin political leadership team in Washington DC in June of 2013.   I love what I do and I believe my clients know that. From wealth management to life and health insurance, I can help you in many different ways. I look forward to the opportunity to earn your trust.

I began working in the financial services industry in 1998, after graduating from Purdue University. Since then, time has really flown by. I guess that’s what happens when you are doing something you believe strongly in and enjoy.

I am currently a partner in 1st Opulence Financial, where I specialize in Wealth Management and Estate Preservation. I enjoy traveling and currently have clients located in many different states, which affords me the opportunity to combine both passions.

My partners and I look forward to assisting our clients with all of their protection and wealth management needs.
