Please come and join your fellow TMA members for a Breakfast with Cook County Assessor, Fritz Kaegi. Fritz will be discussing how he has created a fair, ethical & transparent Assessor's office.
Kaegi took office this past December on a platform of reform. He and his team has launched a 100 Day plan focused on operational changes, technological upgrades & eliminating favoritism. With the changes he's making to the office, he believes it will increase predictability, with benefits for both the business community and the average taxpayer.
Prior to beginning his career in Cook County government, Fritz spent his career as a financial manager at Columbia Wanger Asset Management. In 13 years at Columbia Wanger, Fritz served as a financial steward, helping average families save for retirement as well as focusing on global small companies. In addition to being a Chartered Financial Analyst, Fritz also received the Certified Illinois Assessment Officer (CIAO) designation to deepen his understanding of the property tax assessment system.
Fritz has long been a supporter of grassroots causes and campaigns, including the 2014 minimum wage ballot measure and supporting local organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and Reconciling Ministries.
Fritz was born and raised in the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago. He attended Kenwood Academy, did his undergraduate studies at Haverford College (just outside of Philadelphia), and received his MBA from Stanford University.
Fritz and Rebecca live in Oak Park with their three children, William (10), Rose (8), and Anna (6). Fritz is a member of First United Methodist Church of Oak Park, and is an assistant coach in Oak Park Youth Baseball and Softball.
