John McBride, Stewardship Wealth Advisors founder and financial advisor, has been using his deep expertise in the financial services industry to guide both families and professionals to financial freedom for over 30 years. John began his college career at Georgia State University before swapping forests for palm trees and heading out West to sunny Arizona. There, he graduated with his B.S. in Finance from the University of Arizona and his Masters in Business Administration from Arizona State University.
Before starting Stewardship Wealth Advisors, John cut his teeth in the industry working on the corporate side where he built his experience in a variety of leadership positions. Most recently, his time as director of fraud operations at American Express taught him how to apply thoughtful, data-informed decision-making to his ultimate goal of helping people build their best lives. His philosophy of putting people first eventually led him to take his passion into his own hands and step into his role as an investment advisor at his own Stewardship Wealth Advisors, where people come first. At SWA, John takes pride in creating customized financial plans tailored to the unique goals, values, and needs of his clients.
John’s guiding light throughout his career and life has been to be the best he can be while helping others do the same. John feels fortunate to have a career he not only loves, but that lets him help others achieve their goals, too.
As a proud father of a TV news reporter, John is often traveling cross country to be present in his daughter’s life wherever her broadcasting career takes her. After family and work, John’s time is spent at the gym, traveling the world, and finding new ways to step outside his comfort zone. Most recently, he’s tested his boundaries by attending Burning Man and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
