When I joined Edward Jones in 1984, I was tremendously excited to be in this industry and with this company. We were only about 700 branches nationwide and headquartered in a small office building in Maryland Heights, MO. Today, we are one of the industry leaders.

Because I started so early, I was fortunate to get to meet the legends of our firm like John Bachmann, Jack Phelan and, of course, Ted Jones. They all impacted my career in a very inspirational way.

I realized quickly that after joining Jones, I could make an impactful difference in people's lives. If I did my job well, they could live a better life financially. That is still what drives me today.

I was the first Edward Jones office in the Lake Area in 1984. I chose Sulphur because I liked the small town feel and the great community spirit. Over the years, I have been president of numerous local organizations like Sulphur Rotary, West Cal Chamber of Commerce, The Sulphur Group and Sulphur Industrial Board and have been involved in many others. I am still very active in Sulphur Rotary Club.

I have a BS degree from the University of Houston (but now a Tiger Fan). I am married to the wonderful Misty Finchum and have one daughter, Taylor Alexander, who is also a financial advisor with Edward Jones.

I am asked all the time when I plan to retire, and I tell them that I don't have any plans at this time. I love what I do. I really like helping people achieve their financial goals and watching them enjoy that accomplishment. I am fortunate to have many multi-generational clients over the years and have been proud of what we have achieved working together.

My very experienced Sr. Branch Office Administrator, Suanne Thomason, who started with Edward Jones in 2002, and I look forward to working with the serious, long-term investors of our area. Feel free to call our office at 337-625-9167 and set a time for us to meet.
