Edward Jones Financial Advisor Wins Award for Outstanding Year
John L Barker II of the financial services firm Edward Jones recently won the firm’s coveted Ted Jones Prospecting
Award, which recognizes financial advisors who achieve high levels of success early in their careers. Barker was one of only 1,215 of the firm’s more than 16,000 financial advisors to receive the award.
The award is named after Ted Jones, the legendary son of the firm’s founder, who recognized the need to sell securities to individual investors and established the firm’s one−broker branch office concept.
Jim Weddle, the firm’s managing partner, said the award is a strong indicator of a financial advisor’s future success.
"We recruit and hire our financial advisors from among the best, so we expect our financial advisors to do well," Weddle said. "But to achieve such success this early in his career is outstanding, and I commend John for his performance and dedication."
"I’m very proud to receive an award named after Ted Jones," Barker said. "It is because of him that our Westerville office exists, and I believe we are serving an important need here for one−on−one investment information. I plan to do my best to continue meeting that need."
Barker’s office is located at 111 Westerville Plaza, Westerville, OH 43081.
