David Whitlock of the financial services firm Edward Jones in Middlesboro recently won the firm’s Frank Finnegan Award for his exceptional achievement in building client relationships.

Whitlock was one of 1,100 of the firm’s 16,000 financial advisors to receive the Frank Finnegan Award.

The award is named after Frank Finnegan, who joined Edward Jones in 1953 in St. Louis after playing professional baseball. He is the firm’s longest-tenured active financial advisor

“It’s truly an honor to receive recognition for building relationships with those clients we serve,” said Whitlock. “And it’s quite inspirational to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Frank Finnegan who was dedicated to individual investors and understood each investor’s unique financial goals.”

“David’s success hinges on his ability to know and understand the financial needs and goals of his clients, long-term individual investors,” said Jim Weddle, the firm’s managing partner. “Our clients most appreciate recommendations tailored to their situations and the high level of personal service David provides.”
