Blair Thompson serves as president and founder of Sparta Wealth Partners.
Using the last 15 years in the financial industry, Blair developed a uniquely structured and fully coordinated financial services model. Employing his strategic background, Blair assembled a wealth of business and financial resource specialists to meet the full spectrum of client needs all in one place. As the primary point of contact at Sparta, Blair develops an extensive relationship with each of his clients, creating comprehensive plans to meet their priorities and overall objectives.
Formerly a senior vice president and high net worth relationship manager with large regional private banks, Blair delivered a full suite of private banking, investment management, wealth planning, trust, insurance and estate services to high net worth individuals and companies across the country. Prior to the private banking roles, Blair owned and operated his own firm, Thompson Financial Partners, that evolved from a captive adviser to a fully independent model in the late 2000s prior to being rolled into the bank. Blair is deeply excited about going back into the independent advisory space and brings a rare skillset for having demonstrated success in multiple approaches within the industry as a whole. This experience serves as a tremendous basis for helping successful business owners evaluate what banking products, offerings and services best meet their needs from an agnostic advocate or personal CFO type lens.
Blair holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a Million Dollar Round Table, MDRT®, qualifying member, holds the Certified Wealth Strategist, CWS®, designation and is a perennial Chairman’s Council and Leaders Club qualifier with several institutions. Additionally, he qualified and was nominated for the Prestigious Top 100 Financial Advisers in the USA by a national publication. He has also served on the boards of the Society of Financial Services Professionals, National Association of
Insurance and Financial Advisers, Your Grateful Nation, The Rosie Network and the SEAL Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation and is a member of Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, NC.
While Blair is a civilian, he also serves on a National Innovation Council with Department of Defense and is a uniquely positioned strategic adviser to companies in the U.S. Special Operations Command Network. Recently, Blair was appointed as the private capital adviser for NavalX, a government organization focused on connecting the U.S. Navy with private sector companies, entrepreneurs and disruptive technology. He truly enjoys connecting clients and prospective clients to each other for helpful synergies and believes this adds tremendous value for a Sparta style community of trusted advocacy.
Blair’s motto is: “One Day or Day One. It’s your decision.”View all Team Members
