About Our Process

Hello. I'm John Hondros, managing director with the Sports and Entertainment Group of Truist Wealth Management. I'm a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina but my clients are nationwide. Inspired by my father's legacy, as a financial advisor, I've had the pleasure of serving my community as a professional in the financial services industry for over 20 years. Today, I specialize in helping high net worth individuals in music and sports to create financial plans and manage their assets, whether they're just starting out as a recording artist or planning for retirement from a major sports league. My clients benefit from my intimate knowledge of these specialized services which enables me to address their unique needs and propose solutions that help them achieve their goals. I can call upon a number of experts on my team to address any potential need that my clients have while maintaining the confidentiality that they desire. In addition to serving my clients, I'm passionate about serving my community. I support a number of very important causes, including children with cancer, first responders, and veterans. I'm also on the board of directors of a major hospital that serves the region. My commitment to the community, my clients, and the sports and entertainment industry is core to who I am as a person and as a professional. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
