The Client Support Team

Contact Goran


Goran Aronsson

Goran manages and ensures all incoming transfers and new business is handled and the entire process goes as smoothly as possible.

Like James Geake, graduated from North Park University in Chicago in 2001. He was born and raised in a small town in Sweden before coming to Chicago in 1996 to study. Little did he know in 1996 that twenty years later, Goran would still call Chicago home. He currently lives in the Andersonville neighborhood with his wife and his daughter.

When Goran is not at the office, you’ll likely find him playing golf, at a Blackhawks game, or watching soccer.
