Contact Andy by email
Andy Kaczkowski runs a comprehensive financial services practice that helps families and business owners make smart financial decisions. His firm, WestPoint Financial Group, is affiliated with Mass Mutual and has relationships with many outside resources in the investment and insurance industries.
Andy graduated with a BBA in Finance from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas, where he also met his wife, Lourdes. They relocated to Chicago when Andy pursued an opportunity to work on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange… he stayed for a decade.
Andy and Lourdes chose Oak Park to raise their family over twenty-five years ago. Since then, they have utilized Montessori, public and private education as well as four-year universities and trade schools to help their three children build on their talents and passions to launch them into adult life. Lourdes has also been with Wednesday Journal, Oak Park’s local newspaper, for over 25 years.
Andy supports his community through the OPRF Chamber of Commerce and volunteering with Housing Forward and the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. When his children were younger, he developed many long-term friendships by serving on their elementary school’s Parent Teacher Organization… the last two years as President.
Outside of family time, Andy spends as much time as he can seeing live local music, cooking and gardening… and if you ever want to talk about the Green Bay Packers , Andy is your guy!
