Kurt Supe, CPA
Senior Partner and Co-Founder
Kurt Supe became interested in the investment industry through the help of his grandmother, who assisted him in researching and purchasing blue chip stocks and then watching them grow over time. He now has nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services industry.
After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a bachelor’s degree in finance, Kurt entered the world of finance with 5/3 Bank. He quickly discovered the benefits to his clients of becoming an independent financial advisor. In 2003, Kurt partnered with John Culpepper to form the business now known as Creative Financial Group. Kurt and John are now free from sales quotas and product placements and can serve clients in the manner that best suits their individual needs and goals.
In his quest to offer his clients the best service and breadth of knowledge, Kurt obtained a license as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He views continuing education as instrumental to being able to provide his clients with the best financial advice and informed recommendations.
Kurt is a contributor for WIBC radio and has appeared on a number of other local media affiliates, including ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.
Kurt is an accomplished speaker and has given presentations to many diverse groups, including:
- INCPA (Indiana CPA Society)
- ITPA (Indiana Tax Practitioners Association)
- IACAC (Indiana Association for College Admission Counseling)
- Public and private seminars and insurance sales presentations
A resident of Indianapolis, Kurt is happily married and has two children and a dog. His family enjoys going to Kentucky Wildcat football games (where Kurt is famous for sacking Peyton Manning). He also enjoys hunting, fishing and cooking.
Senior Partner and Co-Founder
John Culpepper has been working in the financial services industry since 1997. John has developed his mission during this time to provide independent advice for his clients that fit their individualized needs financially.
John’s interest in investments began when he was a student at Indiana State University. While studying for his bachelor’s degree in business, he was presented with the opportunity to intern with a local financial firm. It was during this internship that John’s passion for finances was sparked and the accolades for his work began. John was mentioned in Sports Illustrated and USA Today because of his productivity and his new client acquisitions as an intern with the firm. John is also a published author of educational financial pieces in Kiplinger, a national business and finance publication.
In addition to a great internship, Indiana State University provided John the opportunity to meet his beautiful wife, Michelle. They have been happily married since 1999 and together are raising three amazing children in Greenwood, Indiana. John works very hard at providing balance for himself and his family between work and home life. John is an aquarist and loves to maintain his beautiful salt water fish tanks. He also enjoys golf, and he’s currently displaying the 2016 Double Eagle Tournament League trophy in his office. He enjoys fantasy football, Colts football, traveling, fishing, watching movies and spending as much time with family and friends as possible.
John met his current business partner, Kurt Supe, while working at a financial company. They immediately forged a life-long friendship and quickly determined that they shared some basic core values, and both agreed that selling products to clients that they do not need to meet a quota was not what either of them wanted. This was the reason they partnered and opened Creative Financial Group. John works closely with every client to understand their financial holdings and plays an integral role in producing clients’ “individualized” plans with Kurt. John has developed the skills to work with every client to help them capture in writing their financial and retirement goals. John focuses on his client communication and service as he continues to ensure all clients enjoy their experience of becoming a member of his Creative Financial Group family.
John believes in spending time with Dave Ramsey and his team so he can serve his clients in the Indy area.
