As an Edward Jones financial advisor with over 20 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 develop custom-tailored solutions designed to 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 eight grandchildren. Two of our three sons and their families live in the Grand Rapids area. 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, every strategy we offer and every solution we recommend is 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 proven processes to develop strategies that will help you stay on track toward achieving your goals.
