Darren Hucko has been a member of the Hefren-Tillotson team since 2007. He enjoys working with individuals to provide guidance in the areas of investments, retirement, tax, insurance, charitable giving and estate planning. He finds significant value in utilizing Hefren-Tillotson’s comprehensive financial planning approach. Early in his career Darren gained valuable experience working as a senior member within Hefren-Tillotson’s Financial Planning Department where he provided in-depth financial analysis and research for thousands of clients before ever sitting down with one of his own.
He graduated Summa Cum Laude from West Virginia University and shortly after joining Hefren-Tillotson, Darren became a CFP® professional and an active member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA). He later obtained the Retirement Income Certified Professional® certification, which enables him to further specialize in developing advanced income planning strategies for his clients.
Darren partnered with James Sadowski (Senior Vice President and Financial Advisor) to form the Sadowski-Hucko Group within Hefren-Tillotson. Their combined experience in financial planning and investment management, along with Hefren-Tillotson’s extensive resources, allow them to offer the highest level of financial services and expertise to a wide variety of clients.
Darren is the featured speaker of Hefren-Tillotson’s ongoing Welcome Workshops, which are designed to provide an introduction to our client services and an in-depth look at who we are, what we do, and the various ways we can work with clients. These seminars are an excellent opportunity for prospective clients to interview a Financial Advisor and to get their questions answered. Darren can also periodically be heard on Hefren-Tillotson’s “Your Money & You” radio show heard Sunday mornings on KDKA.
Darren and his wife, Stephanie, currently reside in Franklin Park.
