|“I joined Edward Jones because I believe in the firm’s commitment to individual investors and I respect its partnership management structure,” says Whitman. “It is a great privilege to become actively involved in that management as a principal.”
James D. Weddle, managing partner of Edward Jones, says, “Wendell has been a leader in our firm from the beginning and currently serves as a regional leader for the area including Las Vegas and southern Nevada, southern Utah and northwest Arizona, making him responsible for the success of 30 other investment representatives. It is our pleasure to welcome him into the partnership, where he will help lead the growth of Edward Jones in this century.”
Whitman opened his office in 1989, and as his business grew successful, he brought in an additional investment representative to better serve his clients. In 2001, he became a regional leader. Under his leadership, the number of investment representatives in his area grew by more than 30%, resulting in a region spin-off.
In addition to his role as regional leader, Whitman has also served the firm as a Hiring Team member, new investment representative support specialist, growth leader and as a member of the Grassroots Legislative Task Force, which represents the financial concerns of individual investors. He holds dual bachelor’s degrees in business administration and economics from Eastern Oregon University.
An active member of the community, Whitman is past president of the Boulder City Sunrise Rotary Club. He has served as trustee of the Boulder City Library District and as director for the Chamber of Commerce.
“My career with Edward Jones has enabled me to help hundreds of families reach their financial goals, whether that meant sending their children to college or attaining an early retirement,” Whitman says.
