Our Team

Retirement should create enjoyment, not anxiety.

At Keil Financial Partners we know that figuring out retirement on your own can leave you anxious and finding the right retirement planner can be hard.

That’s why we created a 5-step retirement income plan to help you make the best choices with your money. And why we focus so much on financial education through our blog, guidebooks and Retirement Revealed podcast.

Jeremy Keil, CFP®, CFA, CIMA®

Financial Advisor

Jeremy loves helping people learn more about, and feel more confident about their money.

After graduating from college, Jeremy started out by selling suits at Jos A. Bank and working on different political campaigns — which probably explains his love for wearing a tie and the joy he gets when saving money for clients through a tax strategy.

You could probably guess this by the number of letters after his name, but since he started 17 years ago, Jeremy reads as many books on financial, retirement, and tax planning as he can and loves to apply that knowledge towards helping his clients.

In fact, out of over 10,000 financial advisors in Wisconsin, only six have the unique combination of being a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™  professional AND a Chartered Financial Analyst® charterholder.

While serving as an adjunct professor at Concordia University Wisconsin (Cedarburg), and Wisconsin Lutheran College (Milwaukee), Jeremy learned how to take complex financial topics and explain them in a way that even a caveman (I mean college student) could understand.

If he could keep college seniors awake during 8 a.m. Friday classes about corporate finance, you can be sure that while working with Jeremy you’ll know more about, feel better about, and make better decisions about your money. 

When not working on his goal to help people discover their ideal retirement strategy, you’ll find Jeremy hanging out with his wife, Robyn, and two daughters, Emery and Harper at swim, dance, gymnastics, or their church, Lakepoint, in Muskego, Wisconsin.

John Kurcz, CFP®

Financial Advisor

John loves helping people make financial decisions that will help them reach their life goals.

John graduated with a finance degree from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2014 and continues to live in Milwaukee.  His first job was in event tickets and hospitality sales for major sporting events all around the world — this probably explains his knowledge on just about every golf event worldwide!

John entered the financial services industry through an investment focused firm, where he learned a lot but wanted to continue growing and to help people in a more comprehensive, financial way.  

He then sought out a financial planning focused firm — especially one that didn’t have a focus on commissioned investments products. He joined Jeremy’s team  in 2017, and loves helping clients look past the daily stock market moves to instead look towards the financial decisions they can control.

When he isn’t working, you can find John attending a Milwaukee Brewers, Bucks, Packers, or Badgers game or planning his next golf weekend.
