John Sul, CWS®

Co-founder & Wealth Advisor

As a co-founder of Platform Wealth, an independent financial planning and investment management company, John’s relentless commitment to helping clients work toward their life goals represents the essence of what this firm stands for. His experiential knowledge in wealth management and prudence makes him a seasoned advocate for individuals and families who entrust him with their financial wellbeing.

Working for several Fortune 500 companies in the wealth management division for nearly two decades provided John the opportunity to serve and advise a variety of high-net-worth clients. Strategic planning and investment management for retirees, successful business owners, and multigenerational families of affluence helped him to gain valuable experience and better understanding of their financial planning objectives. His drive, work ethic, and dedication to serving others continues to be a catalyst in helping his clients create and preserve their generational wealth.

John is originally from the city of Cheongju, South Korea and grew up in Seoul until immigrating to Washington State at the age of eight. From 3rd grade to his senior year in high school, he developed a keen sense and appreciation for hard work and determination. Traits fostered from his time helping his parents operate gas stations and dry cleaners in Rochester, Olympia, and Tacoma from dawn-to-dusk, six days a week.

John received his bachelor’s degree with a focus in political economics from the University of Washington-Seattle. John holds the CERTIFIED WEALTH STRATEGIST® (CWS) designation, a certification for professionals dedicated to serving affluent and high-net-worth individuals and families by relying on a disciplined process to understand their dynamic setting and formulate tailored wealth strategies and advice for their financial life goals.

John began his career in the financial industry as a financial consultant at Citigroup Smith Barney and later joined Key Investment Services, LLC as a Private Client Advisor and Vice President. For over 15 years, he consistently ranked as a top advisor in the firm and successfully managed over $200 million in assets.
John and his wife, Kasey, his high school sweetheart, are proud parents of their son, Edison. In his spare time, John enjoys running Hood-To-Coast series’ relay races, half marathons, hiking, and cooking bona fide Korean barbeque for his family and friends.
