Leigh Anne Parker of Edward Jones in Louisville recently won the firm’s coveted Zeke McIntyre Pioneer Award, which recognizes new financial advisors who achieve high levels of success early in their careers with the financial services firm. Parker was one of only 318 of the firm’s more than 15,000 financial advisors to receive the award.
Parker received the award at the Edward Jones Region 216 regional meeting in French Lick, Ind.
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 them to do well,” Weddle said. “But to achieve such success early in her career with Edward Jones is outstanding, and I commend Parker for her performance and dedication.”
The award is named after Edward Jones legend Zeke McIntyre, who opened the firm’s first branch office in 1957 in Mexico, Mo.
