John has been a member of Stephens Private Client Group since 2002. “With more than 50 years of experience, I have enjoyed long-term relationships with many clients. It is my job to protect and grow their assets as their lives evolve and financial goals inevitably change,” says John.
John is supported by Melissa Cecil, a registered client associate since 1994 with more than 35 years of administrative experience.
John joined Stephens in 1970 and worked for the firm until 1997. He returned to Private Client Group in 2002 after working at Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Inc.

He is an avid Razorback fan and enjoys playing golf.
