Founder & Investment Advisor

Rob’s commitment to helping everyday people manage their money is firmly grounded in a financial career spanning more than two decades. He is an advisor, educator, manager and small business owner with experience in investment management, financial planning and real estate transactions. While assisting a broad range of clients within Fortune 500 companies such as American Express and Charles Schwab, he realized solid, objective advice and hands-on relationship-based service were the keys to helping investors achieve their financial goals. So, in 2002, he joined Arcadia Investment Advisors, where he served as partner, chief compliance officer and investment manager. Ten years later, he formalized his ownership interest at Arcadia, now named Fort Vancouver Investment Management, LLC.

Beyond serving clients, Rob also actively seeks to enhance financial literacy in his community. As a volunteer for the Foundation for Personal Financial Education, he has been invited to speak by a number of local businesses, such as the Cascade Corporation, Micron Technology and Leatherman Tool Company. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business management from George Fox University and holds a master’s degree in financial services from the Institute of Business and Finance. Rob is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM.

On a personal note, Rob is married to Valerie and they have three children: Kayla, Grace and Joshua. Outside of work, he likes to volunteer with County-Wide Chaplaincy, a non-profit organization that provides a chaplain at the scene of any traumatic injury or death.

Sarah Young

Operations Manager

Sarah relocated to Vancouver in 2004 from California, promptly joined the team, and has been invaluable to us ever since. She assists with client account processing, performance reporting software, technology development and a variety of special client projects. Additionally, she serves as our liaison between us and our custodian, Charles Schwab & Co. by helping clients open accounts, tracking transfers of assets, processing distribution requests and ensuring client needs are met.

Sarah has been on the administrative side of small business throughout most of her professional career. She feels that one of the main benefits of working in a small business environment is utilizing a creative solution process that is at times difficult in a large corporation.

In her off hours, she spends time with her husband, Matt, and their daughter, Emma. Together, they enjoy traveling and experiencing new places. She is also fond of arts and crafts projects, as well as updating their 1950s home.
