As an Edward Jones financial advisor with over twenty years of executive management experience, I've learned the value of personal relationships based on a deep understanding of individual unique financial needs. My Edward Jones branch team develops custom-tailored solutions designed to help achieve your individual goals.

Prior to becoming an Edward Jones financial advisor, I was president/CEO of Riverside Distributors and World Bible Publishers, a wholesale Christian products distributor. My first career was selling industrial chemicals in West Michigan, rising through the sales ranks and ultimately becoming president of the Minneapolis-based Conklin Co., Inc.

In addition to my college degrees, I hold the AAMS® professional designation from the College of Financial Planning.

I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and currently serve on the BSA Gerald R. Ford Council Board.

I have also served my country as a 2nd Lt. in the Michigan National Guard.

My volunteer activities include Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce, Beacon Hill at Eastgate Board of Trustees, Boy Scouts of America, Ruffed Grouse Society and Trout Unlimited (nature conservation organizations), as well as Calvary Church.

My wife, Debbie, and I live in southeast Grand Rapids. I enjoy golf, boating, travel, hunting and, of course, our nine grandchildren. Two of our three sons and their families live in the Grand Rapids area, and one is in foreign service. My son, Justin, is also an Edward Jones financial advisor, serving clients from his branch located in Ada Village, Ada, MI.

At our Edward Jones branch, the strategies we offer and the solutions we recommend are based on what is most important to you, the client. Once we understand your priorities, we work closely with you and your tax, legal and other trusted professionals, using established processes to develop strategies that can help you stay on track toward achieving your goals.
