From a young age, Bill Kress had the example his father set of what planning for the future, and the importance of long-term investments, can do for your peace of mind. Carrying these lessons with him through the years, Bill found a home within the financial industry educating family, friends, and clients as he thinks outside the box in creating plans to achieve their financial goals.
With over 30 years of experience, Bill is a valuable asset to the team at Goodwin Insurance as he works as a Registered Representative, advocating for clients’ insurance and financial needs.
His areas of expertise include small business planning, retirement planning, and distribution tax leveraging. Bill enjoys using his extensive education and experience as he helps individuals achieve their financial goals.
Bill attended SUC Geneseo and the University of Buffalo. He has earned his Chartered Life Underwriter® (CLU ®), Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®), Chartered Advisor for Senior Living® (CASL®), and Retirement Income Certified Professional® (RICP®) designations. For Bill, his education and experience help him guide his clients as their situations evolve, making his dedication to their long-term partnership extremely valuable.
Bill and his wife of 28 years, Lendra, enjoy the beauty, legacy, and small-town feel of where they reside in East Aurora, New York. With the feel of a Norman Rockwell painting, they enjoy the five a dime and vintage movie theater, giving service to their neighbors, as well as worshiping at the First Baptist Church of East Aurora. Bill enjoys bicycling, traveling, gardening, and hiking in his free time.
