our leadership

Founder and Principal, Matthew Pietzak, CFP ®
As Founder and Principal of Vantage Private Wealth, Matthew brings over 17 years of wealth management experience and a client-centric mentality, specializing in comprehensive financial planning, proactive portfolio management, credit underwriting and structuring, wealth transfer and the coordination of client services. Matthew’s resolute decision to open an independent firm was based upon a fiduciary responsibility that focuses on the best interest of his clients full-time. A strategic move was made to provide an alternative to his observations at bureaucratic, vertically integrated firms. This realization came to fruition with the establishment of Vantage Private Wealth.

Matthew offers a distinct perspective when it comes to securing a legacy for his clients, seeking to protect and preserve what they’ve worked so hard for their entire life. His model of constructive engagement manifests itself through continually challenging himself and others to question assumptions and resist the easy answers.


Prior to opening the doors of Vantage, Matthew served as SVP, Senior Relationship Strategist at PNC Wealth Management and Senior Private Banker at Wells Fargo Private Bank. While in these roles, he received the notable Summit (PNC Wealth Management) and Concord Elite (Wells Fargo Private Bank) awards. Additional positions throughout his distinguished career were held at Bank of America and UBS PaineWebber.


A graduate of the University of Florida, Matthew received a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Finance. He holds designations of Registered Investment Advisor and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®). Matthew has participated on the boards of the American Cancer Society of Collier County, Meals on Wheels of Bonita and Baby Basics of Collier County. He is an active member of the Naples community where he resides with his wife and two children.
