Local branch of Edward Jones names new advisor

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

There's a new financial advisor at the Lewisburg branch office of Edward Jones financial services on North Ellington Parkway.

He's Dan Sheible and during a wide-ranging discussion recently, he explained why he selected Lewisburg: "I think the opportunity to grow is here."

Sheible has noted that "We've got active industrial development here... a good workforce that wants to work, and a good location."

Sheible's been the financial advisor at 1285 N. Ellington Parkway a little more than three weeks now. He was offered other locations, but came here after the Edward Jones training programs in St. Louis, Mo., and Tempe, Ariz.

Now, he will "just get out and meet people" and be available to talk about all things financial.

That could include insurance. For 18 years, Sheible was in the insurance business with a responsibility in three states selling large commercial insurance. One example: Large lumberyards.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the U.S. and, through affiliates, in Canada. The firm has more than 1,200 advisors with nearly seven million clients.

Originally from Southern, Ill., Sheible lives in Fayetteville and says he likes to bow hunt deer and turkey, and "hang out with my posse;" his two daughters, Madison, 16, who hunts, too; and Elizabeth, 11.
