Matt Thompson
Advisor Assistant

Matt Thompson is Potomac Financial Private Client Group’s newest Virginia Tech graduate. He graduated in 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in Finance, where he completed Virginia Tech’s CFP® Certification Education Track. He was the FPA President of the Virginia Tech chapter for his senior year and looks forward to getting involved in FPA in the Northern Virginia area. During his time as the FPA President he implemented the program First Generation Investors (FGI). FGI is a program that teaches underprivileged kids about the financial planning industry and how saving and investing early on can set them up for success in the future.

Matt chose to go into the financial planning industry because he wanted to help people achieve their life goals and move towards being financially free. He has seen the financial hardships that individuals can face due to not having any financial guidance. Matt is hoping to be able to relieve the financial pressures of those who are in need.

Prior to joining the Potomac Financial team, Matt interned at Carradice Wealth Advisors in Woodbridge, VA and Feighan and Associates in Valhalla, NY. In Matt’s free time he enjoys skiing, going to the Capitals and Wizards games in DC, traveling, and playing in basketball leagues. Matt is originally from Purcellville, VA and after he graduated, he moved to Reston. He is planning on being in Virginia long term but is also hoping to have the opportunity to travel to new places such as Greece and Italy.
