John Stansfield, Ph.D., CFA®
Director of Investments
Hello, I’m Dr. John Stansfield, the youngest of six brothers who all proudly graduated from Mizzou. Throughout my journey, I have been blessed to share a fulfilling marriage of 36 years with my remarkable wife, Julie Stansfield, MD. Together, we have raised two exceptional sons, Adam and Henry. Our family recently experienced a joyous expansion with Adam’s marriage to Serina Wilson.
In my professional endeavors, I have dedicated myself to the field of academia. Since 2001, I have had the privilege of serving as a professor at MU, imparting my knowledge and expertise in a diverse range of Finance courses. One of my most significant contributions to the Trulaske College of Business has been the college’s recognition by the CFA Institute as a Partner School since 2007. This achievement has bestowed immense benefits upon our students, providing them with 22 scholarships each year to undertake Level 1 of the CFA exams.
Beyond the confines of the campus, I have actively engaged in various community and service-oriented activities. I take great pride in having received two distinguished service awards from the Boy Scouts of America: The Silver Beaver Award and the ¡Scouting!… Vale la Pena! Service Award. Additionally, I am honored to serve as the team lead for Finance and Fundraising in National Service Territory 5 of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Furthermore, I passionately serve as a Philmont Ambassador for the Great Rivers Council, leading boy scouts on invigorating two-week hikes each summer amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the Rocky Mountains.
Overall, my life’s journey has been characterized by a deep commitment to academic excellence, community service, and the fostering of young minds. It is my sincere belief that through education, mentorship, and engagement, we can positively impact the lives of others and create a brighter future for all.
