Christopher Johnson joined Ashford Advisors in September of 2018. As a client of the firm, he witnessed firsthand the intentional process and the impact it had on his family’s financial life; Christopher knew he wanted to be able to help families gain the same sense of financial confidence. Spending nearly two decades in the industry, Christopher has a strong finance background with previous experience at The Capital Group, Bridgewater Associates, GE Capital, and Wells Fargo Capital Finance.
Born in Los Angles, California, Christopher has called Atlanta home since 2013. He and his wife, Nina, married in 2012 and have two sons, Christopher Jr. and Cole. While the couple’s lives center around their sons’ activities, which include swimming and gymnastics, Christopher loves to travel when he has the opportunity. He’s been to Africa, Asia, and South America, with hopes to visit Europe and Australia in the future.
