Our discovery and wealth management approach is driven by what matters most to you

A local to the Sudbury region, John understands no two people are the same—each carries unique goals and challenges. He develops long-term relationships with clients and their families to help them achieve their vision for their future. In the end, he wants his clients to feel secure and confident that their wealth is working for them, their families and their legacy.

While his clients are always top-of-mind, John balances his professional and family life by enjoying time with his wife Tina and two children, Johnny and Anna. He is an MBA and Commerce graduate and obtained the designation of Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®), and Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI®) designations.
