John Christianson, CFA

CEO

My Professional Background

I am the Founder and CEO of Highland, where I have been guiding and stewarding the wealth and aspirations of some of the most successful wealth creators, business owners, and executives in the country for over 25 years. I specialize in taking a thoughtful approach to integrating life and money, something I refer to as Living Fully™.

My Wealth Management “Why”

Since our humble beginnings in 1999 in a small executive suite, I’ve been committed to creating and leading a unique wealth advisory experience with the potential to have a transformative influence on the clients we are privileged to serve.

I believe money is a means to living a full life, not the end itself. I guide clients to understand what Living Fully means for them and steward their financial resources to accomplish that life.

My Personal “Living Fully”

I enjoy spending time boating, golfing, entertaining family and friends, and being active in our church. I believe that being generous with our time, talent, and treasure is central to a life of meaning and purpose.

I live with my wife of 35 years, Kelle, in Woodinville, Washington with Blue, our rescue Catahoula Leopard mix. We are blessed to have three married adult children and five grandchildren that we love to spoil.

My Heart for Impact

I believe more strongly than ever that Highland is changing the world by inspiring, encouraging and providing leverage to wealth beneficiaries as they discover and live into the true purpose of their lives. I can’t imagine anything more important!
