I highly recommend Dean Klassman. He is a good guy that truly cares
about the work that he does. Dean is a leader. He has taken The
Networking Group from zero to well over one hundred people. It is a
dynamic organization that is the best of its kind in Chicago. He has
used the same skills and drive to perfection in his insurance business
and Buddy Baseball. Klassman Financial is top notch with an emphasis on great service. Buddy Baseball has positively affected the lives of so
many people. All of the above is driven by Dean's vision, hard work and follow through.

Leadership. Strength. Energy. Focus. Interaction. Giving. Hilarious.
Those are 7 words that immediately come to mind when I think of Dean Klassman. Through Dean's Networking Group, I have had the opportunity toshare with, and learn from, dozens of great Chicagoland business people; not the least of which being Dean himself. Through his selfless networking, to his leadership in North Shore Keshet Buddy Baseball; Dean just has an innate desire and ability to help people. And this attitude rubs off on the people around him. A big, warm personality that brings a human touch to his clients, partners, friends, and associates. AND, he can just CRACK YOU UP as well. Always a plus! I wholeheartedly recommend Dean and his company Klassman Financial.
