Edward Jones Financial Advisor Receives "Top" Talent Acquisition "Recognition " Award

Jim Weddle, Edward Jones' managing partner, said Jim Williamson has made a valuable contribution to the firm.

"Since 1980, our firm has grown from 304 branch offices to more than 16,000," Weddle said. "With that kind of growth, we encourage and appreciate the recruiting efforts of our successful, established financial advisors."

"I am proud of the reputation of this firm in River Falls and across the nation," Williamson said. "We are dedicated to serving individual investors and serving them well. If I know someone who I believe could enhance our team and live up to the standards Edward Jones sets for its brokers, I try to bring him or her on board. Besides striving to do a good job myself, that's the best way I know to maintain our reputation."
