About Piatchek & Associates
General Securities Representative Shawn Gallagher, with “the heart of a teacher,” helps clients at Piatchek & Associates with investments, retirement planning and other financial advisory services.
Piatchek & Associates is local, independent and family owned—and Springfield native Shawn has been like a member of the Piatchek family since birth; his late father was John Piatchek’s best friend. Shawn treats clients like family, too.
Shawn has a financial services background in commercial lending and taught Personal Finance in Springfield Public Schools. This led Shawn to pursue his teaching certificate, until Piatchek & Associates offered a path back to the work he says he enjoys most: helping clients reach their financial goals in an intimate, independent environment. And Shawn still has the heart of a teacher… which makes him a great fit for those who seek financial guidance and expertise.
Shawn says his time attending Villanova University gave him a renewed appreciation for the qualities that make Springfield a wonderful place to live, so he continues to give back by supporting local nonprofits, sports and culture. In his off hours, Shawn enjoys time with his wife Marla and daughters Roxy and Brinkley, Mizzou football games, varied cuisines and as much travel as he can fit in.
