In addition to business management and operations experience, he has a strong financial background, having successfully completed all courses required to be a Certified Financial Planner. Jon also holds Series 6 and 65 investment licenses. He retired from the U.S. Army Guard with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
That background serves well not only his business brokerage clients, but also the clients of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives), where he volunteers to counsel small business owners and those who want to start businesses.
Jon is a graduate of Young Harris College, The University of Georgia and the Army’s Command and General Staff College.
Jon is married to a “semi-retired” newspaper and magazine editor, has a sone who works for the Department of Defense in Denver and a daughter who is – much to his chagrin – about to graduate from UF.
“The process of bringing buyers and sellers together benefits both parties,” Jon says, “ and I find that tremendously rewarding and exciting.”
