Using an all-inclusive approach, which PJ sees as the future of the wealth planning industry, Atlas eliminates the need for multiple agents such as a CPA, insurance advisor, and financial planner. The result is a clearer picture of your financial potential.
Wherever you see yourself going, Atlas will help you get there.
PJ Wallin is a Certified Public Accountant and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and has dedicated his professional life to the finance and accounting industries.
He started his career more than a decade ago in Chicago with Big 4 accounting firm KPMG, where he established a solid accounting foundation by working with several Fortune 1000 companies. Yearning to work more directly with stakeholders, PJ later joined a high-paced private wealth management firm here in Richmond, VA assisting high net worth individuals and families. Within 3 years, PJ was managing relationships with many prominent Richmond and Fredericksburg families. In addition to his relationship management role, PJ also oversaw the tax department and served as resident expert on complex tax and retirement planning strategies.
PJ received his Master of Accounting and BS in Business Administration as an out-of-state entrant to the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As an undergraduate, he balanced his busy class schedule with his roles as a member of the Varsity Men’s Swim Team and Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
While in the pool, PJ met Whitney, the love of his life. Originally from East Grand Rapids, Michigan, PJ cherishes his summer and holiday visits home to see family. PJ and his family reside in Richmond’s West End.
