After living in the central Michigan area for several years, Chris has returned to his home town and roots in McBain, as the fourth-generation owner of Schepers Agency. He comes to the Agency with a wide-ranging background. He earned an Accounting and Finance degree from Ferris State University and received an MBA from Central Michigan University.
Chris’s first career job after graduating from Ferris was working as an Accountant for Auto Owners Insurance Company. After gaining experience for a few years at Auto-Owners, Chris decided it was time to move closer to home. He accepted a position at CMU in the Accounting and Financial Services Division and finished his career there as Associate Director of Financial Planning and Budgets. From there, he moved on to the public school system for many years as CFO of two Michigan school districts. Chris is extremely proficient in and loves working with numbers. He has been responsible for budgets ranging from $18 million to over $400 million. Chris loves helping people and wanted to be able to do more for more people. It is that passion that drove him to become self-employed as an independent Financial Advisor, after earning his securities and insurance licenses.
His life-long career goal and dream came full circle when he took over as owner of Schepers Agency. It’s with great humbling pride that Chris is able to bring a lot of experience and be part of this incredible office that his great-grandfather started. He is ecstatic to be part of his home town once again and genuinely enjoys interacting with people and helping them. Chris operates on the basic principles of treating people with respect and hangs his hat every day on having the utmost integrity in everything he does.
Chris and his wife, Jill live in McBain. There is never a dull moment between the business and their lives together with seven kids. Chris is proud to be a Free and Accepted Mason and enjoys reading, learning new things, spending time with family and being outdoors – hiking, hunting, fishing. Making a trip to the Caribbean and going sky diving is on his bucket list.
