Tom Levinson


Tom Levinson, '96, has spent much of his professional life advising families and family-owned businesses. He helps run Park Piedmont Advisors, a family-owned registered investment advisory firm. As an advisor, he strives to guide families toward thoughtful uses of their financial resources based on their values, histories, and aspirations. He is also the co-founder, with his wife Elizabeth, of LK Advisors, of an education and coaching firm that works with families and their individual members to navigate important transitions, learn together, and live out their core values. Across his work, his overarching goal is to help people toward an understanding of how money can serve as a vehicle for leading a fulfilling, enjoyable, and meaningful life. 

Tom is also a writer whose work on religion, values, and American life has been featured in national magazines, major newspapers, online, and on TV and radio. He is the author of the book All That’s Holy: a Young Guy, an Old Car, and the Search for God in America and the creator and co-host of a soon-to-launch podcast “Money, Meet Meaning,” which will explore the wisdom our varied spiritual traditions offer for our complex life with money. 

A Manhattan native who, since 2000, has been proud to call the South Side of Chicago home, Tom remains civically active as a non-profit board member, volunteer mentor, and community-based religious educator. He is a cum laude graduate of Princeton in 1996, having majored in religion, and received a Master’s of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School and J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.
