A natural born "big thinker", John leads the Green Wealth Advisory Team with his strategic outlook and ability to see the end goal. He has an innovative focus on client experience and an amazing talent for asking great questions. He can also tell a pretty good story (or two… or three).
As a mentor & visionary, John has led not only the Green Wealth Advisory Team, but the Saskatoon branch as a whole. He has a ton of experience in the industry – 35 years to be exact. This might seem like a big number but John can honestly say he still enjoys waking up and embracing each day. You can be confident that John will have your back; his areas of expertise include: extensive knowledge about investments, market changes, world events (and their effect on markets). Not only that, his appreciation for the behavioural side of investing combines long term perspective with the ability to keep your goals on track.
Oh! And we are pretty proud of the fact that he was awarded TD's "Vision in Action" award in 2010 – the highest form of individual recognition a TD employee can receive. He was chosen because he embodies the spirit of TD's guiding principles – delivering a legendary experience, operating with excellence, taking on risk, and understanding TD's business. An award where approximately 75 in 75,000 TD employees are recognized for. Impressive to say the least!
John's appreciation for both sunrises and sunsets goes deep – almost as deep as the love he has for his miniature dachshunds, Sully & Maddie. As often as possible, he combines the two with an early morning walk. As empty nesters, John and his wife are embracing their independence by traveling, taking the time to try new recipes, and staying very active (the odd game of golf or whatever their bodies will still allow). They have two daughters - one in Victoria and one here in Saskatoon. Both fly home to the coop fairly often.
The Green Wealth Advisory Team is a part of TD Wealth Private Investment Advice, a division of TD Waterhouse Canada Inc. which is a subsidiary of The Toronto-Dominion Bank.
