John J. Ayotte CPA, MST


John Ayotte is one of nine partners at Cornerstone Advisers and is based in the Naperville office.


Since 1980, John has been providing holistic financial services and tax management strategies to the Chicagoland area. His mantra is to always do what’s best for his clients, and to help them remain focused on their long-term goals during all the short-term information thrown their way. John, an Investment Adviser Representative, views himself as the financial quarterback of his clients’ lives and the Cornerstone Advisers team as his extremely reliable bench. Over the years, he’s built relationships with hundreds of families in Naperville and the surrounding area and counts many of them as friends.


At the core of John’s relationship with his clients is one word – listen.  By listening John knows his client’s specific family and financial needs and can articulate and develop a plan that will meet and adapt to their short and long-term needs.


John believes one of the biggest challenges facing his clients today is filtering through the clutter and conflicting information about financial services and the economy. To mitigate this, John is sure to ask the right questions, set and adjust goals with his clients on a regular basis, and surround himself with a team of seasoned, smart professionals to help keep his clients in line with reaching their financial goals. John loves having a team behind him that can provide his clients with the best possible resources as they move through life together.


In his spare time, John enjoys playing tennis, long-distance biking, and spending time outdoors. He also loves making memories with his family, especially his four young grandchildren.
