Jim Weddle, the firm’s managing partner, calls Coward a leader in the firm and an example of what a dedicated Edward Jones financial advisor can achieve. Coward was one of only 503 of the firm’s more than 14,000 financial advisors to receive the Century Award.
The Wake Forest resident said he is honored to receive the award. “I am one of those fortunate people who gets to make a living doing something I truly enjoy,” Coward said. “This industry is always challenging and sometimes difficult, but I enjoy helping the people of Bedford at Falls River and northern Wake County meet their financial goals. It is a pleasure to be recognized for my work.”
