Rob Varn, CFA®
Robert is Chief Investment Officer and Partner of Lakeview Capital Management. Robert co-founded Varn Investment Counsel, Inc. with his father, Robert M. Varn, in 1993. Together, they focused on proprietary research of Georgia companies. They worked together for eight years until the death of the elder Mr. Varn in 2000. Robert continued to manage and grow the company through 2009, achieving his Financial Analyst Charter along the way.
He chose to join Lakeview in 2010, recognizing that in order to serve the varied needs of his clients, he needed to offer a greater breadth of products and a greater depth and quality of service. At Lakeview, the focus is solely on protecting and growing client assets. Using what we believe to be the best available research and financial products, we are able to invest for our clients without the bias and conflict you typically find on Wall Street.
Robert grew up in Atlanta, spending weekends in the mountains, and working summers at Delta Airlines during college. He attended boarding school in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he met his wife, Jennifer. Jennifer has a Degree in Architecture and is focused on her fledgling design business. They have two young daughters, Kelsey and Sierra.
