John Benevides, CPWA®

East Region President









“Wealth management is very personal. It requires the ability to listen to another person, to help them uncover an issue or an aspiration — to then frame a plan around it and to execute it.”

John Benevides provides vision, strategic and operational leadership in service to clients across the Eastern Region of U.S. Bank Private Wealth Management. As East U.S. President, his responsibilities include delivering integrated wealth management services on behalf of high net worth clients and championing teams across the region as they engage with clients to help them work toward their goals. John leads teams servicing clients out of offices in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Louisville, Naples, Nashville, New York and Palm Beach.

John believes that a genuine personal interest, passion and unyielding commitment are cornerstones of a vibrant and trusted relationship. This professional philosophy and secret to success comes to life in his approach to guiding families and individuals who seek assistance in managing investments, philanthropic activities, estate and planning opportunities.

“I am deeply committed to building relationships in an atmosphere of trust,” he says. “This requires substantive energy, continued engagement and collaboration among teams and a purposeful approach to always do the right thing. In Private Wealth Management, the integrity of leadership, the culture of the firm, the non-product orientation of advice and the focus on serving clients first is a rare combination in today’s marketplace.”

John’s background includes more than 25 years of wealth management and financial services experience, including serving as president and CEO of CTC myCFO, an integrated wealth management provider and a subsidiary of the Bank of Montreal.
