PJ Horan began his career in financial services directly out of college in 2007 as a Financial Advisor. He was very diligent in building his practice while also expanding and improving his professional skills. He slowly and carefully built a client base as he studied and learned from his Senior Partner.
From 2012-2016, PJ pursued management under the new leadership of the firm that he had started at. In the fall of 2016, PJ stepped back from management to focus and grow his personal practice. He wanted to have more time to spend with clients as well as more freedom to help raise his young family. PJ focuses on helping families using financial planning strategies centered around making college more affordable and paying for it without sacrificing retirement or other life goals. In January of 2019, PJ joined Highlander Financial Group. This new partnership allows for a much more robust practice to help our clients live their best lives.
PJ is also very active in his community. He helped coach Varsity Basketball at Poolesville High School and is now head coach for his sons’ Basketball and Baseball teams. Sports are very important to PJ and because of that, he serves as President of the board of Poolesville Athletic Association, where he works to create an organization that can promote and support the local youth sports. PJ is the Past Chair of the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional Group & serves on the Chamber Board. In 2015 he was awarded by the chamber as the Young Professional of the year.
PJ and his wife Katie have three young children; Johnny, Christopher, and Hallie. Despite all
his involvement in the community, PJ makes sure there is time for family. He enjoys playing
Golf and Baseball with both of his sons in their backyard at their home in Poolesville, MD. PJ is
an avid golfer and huge Maryland Terrapins fan.
