Kristopher Thompson

Financial Advisor

Kristopher Thompson (Kris) joined Walsh & Nicholson Financial Group in January 2024 as a Financial Advisor.  He was born and raised in Michigan where he graduated from Michigan State University with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies of Social Sciences. After graduating from college, he chose to serve in the United States Army, where he remained for the next 5-years. 

 

He served in the 101st Airborne Division in the 2-506 Infantry Regiment, Easy Company (as made famous by HBO’s Band of Brothers) and achieved the rank of Captain.  He was notably selected to serve as the 101st Airborne Division’s Global Reaction Force Executive Officer.  During his time in the military, he also successfully completed US Army Ranger School, Airborne School, Air Assault School, Pathfinder School, and Master Resiliency Course training.

 

After making the decision to leave the military, he planted his roots in West Chester with his wife, Sara. Kris got his start as a financial professional immediately after moving to Pennsylvania and has since earned his MBA in Finance from Drexel University, excelled in completing additional securities licensing exams, and became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner while establishing himself in the industry, further showcasing his commitment to professional excellence and serving his clients effectively.  Kris also holds his Series 66 and Series 7 licenses.

 

Beyond his professional endeavors, Kris finds fulfillment in his family life, cherishing moments spent with his wife and two young sons. Kris also loves outdoor activities, whether it involves camping, hiking, or hitting the golf course (even though he knows he is bound to hit 20 over-par).
