Since 2009, John has been helping dentists get the most out of their practice transitions. As Vice President at Bank of America’s Practice Solutions Division, John managed the New York and New England territories, helping hundreds of dentists transition into or out of practice ownership. His extensive experience in the Financial Industry gives him a unique perspective when it comes to finding and vetting prospective buyers and helping make deals happen smoothly.
John has an unparalleled knack for listening to—and connecting with— his clients. It’s a skill he learned early on in his career when he worked for the iconic menswear store, Brooks Brothers, and built upon as he fast-tracked his way through a myriad of personal and investment banking channels. A consummate professional, John always keeps the best interest of his clients at the forefront of any transaction and values client satisfaction as his top priority.
John is originally from St. Louis, MO and made his way to Boston through Columbus and New York City. When not spending time with his lovely wife, Corey, and French Bulldog, Franky, he’s skiing, playing golf, traveling or attending any ticketed event.
