Founder, Don Schreck
Man. One Dream.
His dream was a simple one: providing a comfortable life for his family. With an accounting degree from Wichita State University, Don Schreck set out to determine how he was going to accomplish his goal. He tried several endeavors, from a stint as a Kirby Vacuum cleaner salesman to opening his own
liquor store. Ultimately the opportunity to help people in the insurance business came his way, and well, the rest was history.

wife, Nadine, worked to help him as his secretary when she wasn’t chasing

proved inaccurate as he rather quickly became the number one sales agent
nationally for his company for fourteen years. Through his hard work and

company to this day.

that all three sons, Bruce, Brian, and Brad, joined him and helped him build what
is now Schreck Financial Group. Dan Buck was the first brave agent to
join the company that was not in the family. The first member of
the third generation of advisors joined the company in 2003 when Don’s
grandson, Shawn O’Mara, joined the business. In 2004, grandson Joshua
Bolan came on board.
2008, John Toothaker brought his business over and joined the firm; Ron Gabel
followed suit and joined Schreck Financial in 2010. Ron and John were
made equal partners with Bruce, Brian, and Brad in 2012 and plans have been put
in place to have them share in the leadership of the group now and well into
business has celebrated its fifty years of existence helping others achieve
their dreams through wealth management and preservation of assets.
The company has
expanded to include approximately 30 employees. The same philosophy
established through Don’s quiet wisdom is as apparent today as it was fifty years
ago: keep the client’s best interest in mind, and all could prosper.
