John describes himself as an “extreme extravert,” which makes sense when you consider he grew up as the youngest of six kids. He learned at an early age how to stand out in a crowd. John was recruited to Marks Group in 2021 after starting his career at a large Wall Street firm and spending two years at a small local RIA.

The most recent CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ added to our team, John works closely with John and Pat managing client relationships and developing new business. Engaging with new people and helping them tackle financial challenges is what he enjoys most about our business.

John attended high school at Saint Thomas Academy and graduated from Creighton University in 2017 with a finance degree and an emphasis on economics and financial services. He is president of the Saint Thomas Academy Alumni Association. He is also a member of the Minnesota Zoo Associates Board and involved with the Alzheimer’s Associations Young Champions Board. John and his wife Maddie live in St. Louis Park with their two Labradors, Millie and Lou.
