Richard D. Thompson CPA, CFP®

Wealth Manager / Partner

I am very blessed to have found a profession that allows me to use both my heart and my head. The Financial Planning profession allows me the opportunity to serve people by using my God-given analytical skills and decades of financial training.

I am equally blessed that God allowed Tracy and my paths to cross at a Rotary meeting in 2005. That meeting spawned several conversations in which Tracy shared with me his approach to retirement planning and practice management. It was that unique approach to his clients and their finances that drew me to join Tracy over a decade ago to create Lentz Thompson Retirement Advisors.
