New Advisor added to Larrabee Wealth Management Team

We are thrilled to welcome the newest member to the Larrabee Wealth Management team!  With 20 years of career experience in financial services, Ken Dryfhout joined Benjamin F. Edwards last year as Co-Branch Manager and Financial Advisor.  He was previously Managing Director of BCU Wealth Advisors and VP, Strategy & Growth for Baxter Credit Union in Vernon Hills, IL. 

Although Ken and I are both CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professionals, he out-credentials me by also holding the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) designation. If you are unaware of the CFA Charter, it is a globally recognized designation that requires passing a rigorous three-part test where the number of applicants who pass rarely exceeds 40%. 

You can learn more about Ken’s background and experience by visiting his LinkedIn page and connecting with him if you’re active on that platform.  I look forward to introducing Ken to you soon! In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out to him at or 630.517.9666.

On a personal level, Ken lives locally in Wheaton with his wife Brenda and four children – Reese (13), Sydney (11), Garrett (9), and Harper (7) – the obligatory family picture is included here.  Outside the office, he enjoys being outdoors, camping with his family, riding his bike, or playing golf.  

Continuing to build on our team-based approach is important in providing you with the excellent service that you deserve and have grown to expect.  As always, thank you for your continued trust and I’m excited for the road ahead.
