About our team

We founded Vista in 2021 to creatively challenge the status quo of wealth management.

At our core, we’re rooted in trust, loyalty, and collaboration with our clients and with each other. Life is busy, and we often become too fixated on what’s right in front of us, losing sight of the bigger picture.

Together, we’re creating a world where talking about “the dream” is encouraged, and we thrive on the challenge of bringing it into focus, and then into reality.

Chris Williams – More than two decades in the wealth management industry shaped Chris's core belief that the foundation of innovative wealth strategy is truly listening to clients and encouraging their real dreams and wildest ideas to be spoken out loud. With a penchant for thinking differently, and applying old ideas in new ways, Chris founded Vista to bring complex wealth management into the future by building a network of institutions, technology, and services that doesn't exist in the traditional marketplace.

Chris and his wife Brooke live in St. Louis' Central West End with their two daughters (Caitlin & Claire) and two sons (Daniel & Patrick). Chris enjoys skiing, playing hockey, coaching kid’s sports teams, and traveling with family.


Brian Landzaat, CTFA – Brian’s sixteen years in the wealth management space have sparked his passion for an exceedingly human centered wealth management experience that’s supported by technology customized for your life and your needs. He’s also dedicated to building the best culture in the industry – a place where creative people can give their best to their clients, themselves, and their families.

Brian and his wife Nicole, live just outside of St. Louis, Missouri in the city of Webster Groves, and have a daughter (Margot) and son (Felix). Brian enjoys music, the outdoors, and cooking with the family.

Lincoln Sorensen – Lincoln is energized by the day-to-day relationships with clients. He has vision for streamlining the unwieldy and arcane investment management approach that dominates the industry in favor of an agile, customizable, and data-driven process that is ready for any client complexity.

Lincoln has twelve years of wealth management experience. He and his wife, Claire, live in St. Louis in the Warson Woods neighborhood and have twins Lincoln III and Frances.  Lincoln enjoys playing golf, following St. Louis & Mizzou sports, and spending time with family and friends.


Brendan McNab – Brendan joined the Vista team following five years in the wealth management industry, with prior experience including life insurance, investments, financial planning, trust administration, banking, and technology. He is excited to be part of a small firm that leverages a new kind of model to fulfill the full spectrum of clients’ financial needs on par with a large firm, while maintaining a personal, tailored approach.

Brendan is a St. Louis native who recently returned to the area after several years in Colorado. He’s glad to be back in the land of the Cardinals and the Blues. He participates in a local running club and enjoys hitting the trails on his bike.
