John Christensen
BlueCreek Investment Partners


John joined BlueCreek Investment Partners in April of 2011, attracted by the transparent fee structures offered to clients and the consistently high level of service provided. He has considerable experience providing 401(k) and retirement plan benefits for businesses, but, as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®, his primary focus is on financial planning and investing for families, business owners, executives, and professionals.

John began his career in financial services as a Trust Administrator and Document Review Specialist for National Advisors Trust, FSB in Overland Park, Kansas. During his time there, he was exposed to many great financial planning firms and learned a great deal about successful intergenerational wealth transfers. Later, in his work as a Strategic Advisor for a publicly traded regional bank and trust company, he helped business owners, executives, and professionals chart their financial goals and track their progress over time. In addition to his client-service work, John makes time to serve his community. He is a member of the Kansas City Rotary Club 13, the Donald H. Chisholm Planned Giving Council of Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, and the Kansas State Treasurers 529 Advisory Board.
