John was joined in business by his son Jeff Stanek in May of 2015. Before joining John and NEXT Financial Group, Inc., Jeff also worked in a people-first environment, albeit in a different medium. For the better part of the last decade, Jeff worked as a college baseball coach and recruiter where developing personal, trust-based relationships with players and their families, coaches and scouts was paramount to his success. That background will serve well in a business where trust and personal attention are so valuable. For a complete bio on Jeff, please click on the link below.
