John Mynatt, Branch Manager
A Nashville native, John has four decades of experience in the field, building a clientele that in some cases spans 35 years. That loyalty is likely due to his willingness to go far beyond the normal relationship, turning most of LPL Financial's clients into good friends as well.
John started in wealth management in 1972 at NYSE member firm A.G. Edwards & Sons Financial before accepting a political appointment as assistant finance director for the city of Nashville and executive director of the Benefit Board. He also worked for JJB Hilliard Lyons before striking out on his own in 1979. As an independent with LPL for the last 25 years, he is consistently in the top 10 percent of the firm in terms of production and service to clients. John has more than $50 million in assets under management and his specialties include municipal bonds and strategic stock and ETF evaluation and execution. He is passionate about finance, enjoying areas like macroeconomic analysis so his clients don't have to.
John works alongside his wife, Pat, and they have three grown daughters and one grandchild. In his spare time, he is an avid outdoorsman and hunter.

They married in 1973 and Pat continued to teach in Nashville before taking time off to raise their children.
