Edward Jones - Financial Advisor: Ryan Stephen

When I started this journey I never expected this, but I am honored to be chosen as the Veteran Financial Advisor of the Year for our region. This award is based on the growth of my branch, the amount of volunteering within the region, the leadership positions I've had the opportunity to hold and the recruiting efforts to bring more advisors to this wonderful opportunity with Edward Jones. A special thanks to all of you! As we all know, networking together grows us all. Thanks!
