John Sims | Black Onyx

Founder & CEO
Based in Chicago, John Sims is a trusted figurehead in the realms of business, finance, and entrepreneurship. Since the outset of his career, John has been dedicated to building others up, whether through taking a direct part in their professional development, serving as a mentor for aspiring entrepreneurs, or organizing fundraisers to benefit the community as a whole. Most notably, John Sims leveraged his corporate contacts to launch a fundraiser to bring free sports and other extracurricular activities to youths in the city area, thus eliminating the failing "pay-to-play" structure the city had been relying so heavily on. Now, this fund has grown exponentially, expanding to offer children and teens scholarships to college, free musical instruments and training, and more.
