Joseph Janiczek’s Story

Joseph Janiczek's Story
You are here:

How did Janiczek® find itself among the top, best and most exclusive wealth advisory firms in the country – multiple times over?

It started with our “why”. The why behind Janiczek® began when our Founder and CEO, Joseph Janiczek was fascinated with the success of an extended family member who built an enormously successful fast food restaurant franchise in Chicago. One aunt’s delicious hot dog recipe combined with years and years of hard work resulted in a bustling, multi-location business that became very lucrative and began attracting attention from buyers.

When the price was right, the business sold and life changed drastically for the relative who was behind it all. It was an American dream come true, the kind everyone likes to hear about – only it wasn’t the end of the story, it was the beginning of seeing how creating wealth and managing wealth are two very different skill sets.

Joseph, as a young man, watched first hand as years of blood, sweat and tears created massive wealth, only to watch it all evaporate for this same relative a very short number of years later. All of it. Gone.

Joseph was stunned. He asked himself “How can this be possible? What went wrong? How can this be?” All the years of hard work and serving their family-owned business should have created wealth that would serve the family for the rest of their lives.

Watching it melt away created a great impression on Joseph beginning in his teenage years and on into adulthood. He went on to found an oil company and lead it as its president early in his career. He couldn’t help but notice that it wasn’t just his extended family suffering from poor wealth management. It was happening to others as well.

Joseph became acutely aware that most people are not prepared and have little if any confidence in how to manage a large, life-changing, liquidity event in their lives. Therefore, after six years at the helm of the oil company he founded, Joseph made it his life’s mission and purpose, to study and learn everything he could to not only help protect the wealth for those who created it, but more importantly, to make it grow and serve them.
