Scott Voigt, CFA, CPA, CFP®
Partner, Financial Advisor
What events led you to this career?
Getting laid off from the investment banking industry provided me the opportunity to really think about what I wanted to do next. I knew I wanted to work with individuals and make an impact in their lives. I reached out to a childhood friend, Thad Gilliam, about his job in financial planning. I ending up taking a job at his company. A year later, we decided to team up and start Verisail. The rest is history.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I most enjoy being able to bring financial peace of mind to individuals and families. I often see how finances can be a sensitive and stressful topic. The satisfaction of bringing a clear and concise plan to clients is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I love what we do and that's as good as it gets. What a gift.
Federal employees, corporate executives, sales executives, young families, and small business owners.
My wife, Lindsay, and I currently reside in Lilburn where we are active members of the community. We recently built a house in the downtown area of historic Lilburn. I grew up here so it was a nice return to familiar territory. We have enjoyed every minute of living in a walkable community with friends and family.
What are your interests outside of work?
Lindsay and I love to travel. Our desire is to travel to all 50 states and 7 continents. I also enjoy endurance sports. Two of my most proud accomplishments were completing Ironman Canada and running a sub 3-hour marathon. I have always loved being outside. On a nice day, you can find me running trails with my dog, Cooper, playing golf, or landscaping my yard. Recently, I have taken up the hobbies of collecting rare, hard to find bourbons and making craft cocktails. I am also an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan. As a new season ticket holder, Lindsay and I try to attend as many games in Athens as possible.
