Christopher Gandy* LACP Associate General Agent

Chris works with clients to create custom financial strategies designed to help make their dream retirement lifestyle a reality.

In 1999, Chris started his own financial services practice and, since then, has worked with business owners, physicians, professional athletes and key executives all over the country. Chris focuses on the areas of life insurance, disability income insurance, investments and tax-efficient strategies.

After playing basketball for the Fighting Illini at the University of Illinois, where he was co-captain and earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors, Chris played professional basketball for the Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs and in L'Hermaine, France.

After his time in the NBA, and before founding his own agency, Chris worked as a Northwestern Mutual Financial network representative. While there, he became a Million Dollar Round Table Member -  an  association of financial professionals.

Chris was a communications major at the University of Illinois.

In 2012, Chris found a way to give back to the sports community by becoming a board member of the Chicago Concussion Coalition (founded by Chris Nowinski, of the Emmy-nominated movie "Head Games"), which strives to make amateur sports safer for children. He is also on the board of directors of the Urban League, part of the United Way's Young Community Leaders, and volunteers for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with friends, following the NBA and spending time with his best friend and son, Jordan.
