Nicole Meyer recently graduated from a trainee position to that of branch office administrator at the Fort Wayne office of the financial-services firm Edward Jones. Meyer has lived in Fort Wayne for 25 years. Shawn Wall, the firm’s local financial advisor, said Meyer was promoted after successfully completing the firm’s in-depth training program.

“For the past six months, Meyer has performed the duties of her job while also working to complete her training and testing requirements,” Wall said. “This is a well-deserved promotion.”

Wall said the title of branch office administrator (BOA) was adopted for this position at Edward Jones because of the wide range of responsibilities associated with the job.

“A BOA is not only responsible for the daily operation of the branch, but also must provide top-level client service and marketing support for office activities,” said Wall. “On a given day, Meyer’s activities could include processing client trade transactions, providing clients with receipts for money and securities, and assisting in the planning of seminars and special events.”

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliates, in Canada and the United Kingdom. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work.
