John Fenwick (1966-2024)


John Fenwick, also known as “White Rhino,” was the Founder and President of Preferred Partners. He will always be remembered at our firm, as he worked closely with us to build a tight-knit group that we are able to call a family. We loved and respected John, and admired him for the great passion he had for this team and business.

With his rhino-like strength and determination, John began his career as a national brokerage director at Aetna, where he noticed independent agents struggling to grow due to isolation. He envisioned a collaborative environment where advisors could thrive and put his ideas into action by creating his own branch in 1998. Within just six months, Preferred Partners became the largest branch of his then-broker dealer.

Born in Fort Collins, CO, and raised in Denver, John earned an engineering degree with a minor in economics from Colorado State University. He then proudly served in the U.S. Navy for 9 years. In addition, John has served as the former President and Chair of the International Association for Financial Planning.
