Edward Jones Financial Advisor Kristi Bennington and Branch Office Administrator Jennifer Jones in Morris recently were ranked within the top 25 percent of the country for excellence in client service at Edward Jones.

This honor was bestowed based upon the results of a survey in which random clients were asked to rank the service they received from the staffs of their local Edward Jones branch offices. The survey identified Bennington and Jones as providing some of the most exemplary client service within the firm.

“We are particularly honored by this award as it is one bestowed upon us by our clients,” Bennington said.
