Team Member Highlight – Mohammad Vedadi, CFP® CRPC®
Mohammad is an active advisor working out of our St. Louis Park and Duluth offices. He lives in Golden Valley along with his wife, Mariam, and two boys, Arman and Bijan.
Mohammad was born and raised in southern Iran. When he was eight years old, he came to the United States for a surgery at the Mayo Clinic. The surgery was delayed and he found himself growing up in the United States without his family due to the revolution and the Iran-Iraq war. After becoming a US citizen, he went back to Iran and was reunited with his family after 18 long years of being separated. Several years later, he was able to bring his parents to the US. They reside close to him in Golden Valley and have since been an integral part of his life. He hopes one day immigration rules will allow for the rest of his family to visit him and parents in the U.S.
When not working, Mohammad loves spending time with family, travelling and working on various projects on his house.
