Team can help you thrive financially

Thrivent Financial’s local team is excited to announce its move to downtown Marquette. Formerly located along Baraga Avenue, Thrivent has moved near the corner of Third and Washington streets. The local branch, now doing business as Third Street Associates, is proud to offer clients a wide array of services from a team of six licensed advisors with over 50 years of combined experience. The team includes Alexandra Pahnke, Brian Pahnke, Wyatt Eisenberger, Craig Etelamaki, Brett Branstrom and Jed Larsen. They are confident that their new space downtown will accommodate their expanding team and allow them to provide quality, face-to-face service to even more members.

“Our team has grown significantly in the last few years, and so has the list of clients we serve,” said Alex Pahnke, Financial Professional with Thrivent. “We’re happy to be in a space that meets our needs and makes us more efficient for our members. Our team loves to give back and stay active in the community, and we hope that our spot in the downtown will give us even more opportunities to do so.”

The Third Street Associates will be hosting an open house for the public from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10. Their office is located at 100 N. Third St. in downtown Marquette, across from the post office. For more information, please call 906-273-0040 or send an email to thirdstreetassociates@thrivent.com. No products will be sold.

“In my 30 years with Thrivent, I haven’t been more excited about the opportunities we have to serve our members,” said Craig Etelamaki, Financial Associate with Thrivent. “The financial strength and ethics of our company, combined with the operation we have locally, is truly something special.”

Thrivent’s Third Street Associates specialize in the areas of: retirement income planning, investment management, protecting loved ones against the impact of long-term care, death, and disability, charitable giving, and college planning.
