Joe Donti Chief Executive Officer/Financial Advisor

When anyone asks Joe Donti what he does for a living, his answer is simple: “I’m a financial junkie!” However, that’s just the first sentence of a story that’s always been about one thing: building others up.

A financial professional who can offer both insurance and investment products and services, Joe’s career actually began in the footsteps of his father, a successful contractor. Joe’s lifelong passion for building and constructing was parlayed into ownership of a thriving contracting company that operated from the early-‘80s through the late-‘90s. So what changed? A then-client challenged Joe to pursue a career in the financial services sector, and he enthusiastically agreed. Starting from scratch over 20 years ago in a new industry, it wasn’t long until Joe brought his blue-collar approach and “constructing mentality” into the financial world.

Today, Joe and his partner, Patty, combine to form a dynamic husband-and-wife financial duo. They have three children and five grandchildren and are proud supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and several other charitable organizations across Arizona. In their free time, Joe loves camping, traveling, motorcycling and, most importantly, spending time with family.


Patty Donti Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Together with her husband Joe, Patty Donti founded Solutions First Financial Group back in 2008. After spending much of her employed life in mortgage and insurance services, it was a breath of fresh air to build a husband-and-wife team and have the ability to provide services on a more personal level. Patty is very nurturing and felt working for large corporations lacks the emotional connection she enjoys. She is passionate about working with their existing clients while building strong relationships and welcoming new members to the Solutions First family.

Patty is a proud supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and several other local charities, in particular animal welfare organizations. When she’s not in the office, Patty enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being a Nana and trying new dishes — she is a huge “foodie” and will never skip dessert!
