Tara L. Pierre Receives Ted Jones Entrepreneurial Award

Tara L. Pierre of the financial services firm Edward Jones in Door County recently won the firm’s Ted Jones Entrepreneurial Award for her exceptional achievement in building client relationships.

The award is named after Ted Jones, the son of the firm’s founder. He became the firm’s 18th financial adviser in 1948 and served as managing partner from 1960 to 1980. Ted Jones saw the opportunity to serve individual investors in communities across the country and designed the one-financial adviser branch business model. He valued the concept of partnership so much so that he provided ownership opportunities for associates to share in the firm’s success, a practice still alive today.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized for building relationships with those clients we serve,” said Pierre. “And it is also quite inspirational to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Ted Jones who was so innovative and recognized the need for quality financial advice for long-term individual investors.”

Pierre was one of 831 of the firm’s more than 15,000 financial advisers to receive the Ted Jones Entrepreneurial Award.
