John-Paul F. Stornetta
John-Paul was raised in a home where discussions regarding finance, economics, and politics were commonplace. By the age of 12, he was taking every opportunity available to toss his two cents into the heated debates with elders. The compilation of his frugal Swiss heritage, early reading on investing, and desire to understand the business and economic world guided him down his career path.
At the age of 15, he strolled into Maguire Investments, LLC with meager savings from birthday money and chores, a passion for investing, and an eagerness to learn. During his first investment consultation, Steve Maguire offered John-Paul an internship at the office. John-Paul worked summers and holiday vacations until he completed his education.
John-Paul began his career with Maguire Investments more than 20 years ago, in June 1997. He started from the bottom and worked his way up, performing a variety of functions, including compliance, human resources, accounting, sales, and even taking out the trash. These roles, along with his formal education, provided the foundation for his current focus on serving clients and helping them ensure their financial well-being.
John-Paul earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration, cum laude, and his MBA from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
John-Paul holds the FINRA Series 7, 24, 53, and 63 securities registrations.
