John Wadman


Father of son with rare genetic immune deficiency disorder

John is the treasurer and portfolio manager of a Boston-based investment firm. He analyzes financial statements, and meets with management teams of publicly traded companies, seeking potential investments.

He began his financial career as a trader in Boston. At the time, he was a member of the Boston Securities Traders Association, where he served on the charity foundation sub-committee, which raised money for inner city disadvantaged children, the homeless, and others in need.

John and his family moved to North Carolina from Massachusetts, in 2010. His son suffers from a rare genetic immune deficiency disorder and now receives excellent care at Duke Medical Center. During the summer his son spends a week at Victory Junction overnight camp. This residential camp was founded by Kyle Petty, of Nascar fame, and the late Paul Newman, to provide kids with chronic medical conditions with a vacation week at no cost to the families. John participated in the “Run to Victory” half marathon to raise funds for this unique camp.

John earned his B.S. in Management Studies from Boston University, and his M.B.A. from Cornell University.
