Our Team

John G. Bennett, CFA®

Institutional Sales Director

“Grit matters more than talent.”  –Angela Duckworth, author


While John is fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese (a talent, no doubt), it is how he listens, learns, and speaks about proprietary investment solutions that we believe contributes the most value for our institutional and intermediary partners.


John brings more than 30 years of experience in the investment management industry.  Prior to joining Greenwood Capital in 2017, he worked with Thomson Hortsmann & Bryant based in Norwalk, CT, and Palmer Square Capital based in Mission Woods, KS.  John began his career as an investment officer for the Financial Institutions Retirement Fund in White Plains, NY.


He received his M.B.A. from Fordham University and his undergraduate degree from Siena College.  John is also a Chartered Financial Analyst®.  Experience and education aside, he considers raising two self-sufficient children (now in adulthood) with his wife, his number one achievement.  He is an active volunteer in his church, and for Multiple Sclerosis assistance.  He also teaches English as a second language.
