Kurt Supe, CPA
Senior Partner and Co-Founder
Chief Investment Officer

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.

John Culpepper
Senior Partner and Co-Founder

John Culpepper has been working in the financial services industry since 1997. He 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.

Andrew Drufke
Partner

Andrew Drufke has a passion for helping individuals exemplified by 14 years of hotel management experience in the Chicago and Indianapolis area. This passion has guided him to the financial industry. He believes that all individuals should have access to top end financial advice regardless of net worth.

Born and raised in Downers Grove, Illinois, Andrew graduated from Illinois State University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. Upon graduation he began his career in hotel management. Hospitality nurtured his desire to assist others and lead a team. His career includes experience in Salt Lake City, Atlanta, New York, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis. Through years of leading others and networking, he noticed the financial knowledge gap. The continuous living paycheck to paycheck and the belief you can’t get ahead was all too common among hard working individuals. Andrew left his career to fill that knowledge gap for others.

A constant learner and frequent visitor to the library, he is focused on being a valuable source of knowledge and comfort for others. It’s imperative that all those who seek help may find it. Providing peace of mind, clarity, and guiding others on their financial path are top priority. Andrew’s prior role as Financial Planning Assistant provided him valuable experience creating plans alongside the advisory team with over 25 years of experience. He has gained holistic knowledge on Social Security, Medicare, tax planning, investments, income, and retirement planning.

Proud resident of the Indianapolis community, Andrew is happily married and kept busy by his three kids. Attending cheerleading, softball, soccer, and coaching baseball are just a handful of kid activities. When it’s time to get away, nothing beats a secluded cabin on a lake. He is inspired by Jim Rohn who declared: “Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you can’t get more time.”
