FARMVILLE — Edward Jones opened its doors in Farmville in September 2002. The local firm is celebrating its 15-year anniversary this year.

To commemorate the milestone, and honor a business that not only guides its clients to make the most-sound financial decisions, but also supports and gives back to the community it serves, the Farmville Chamber of Commerce awarded the firm with the June Merchant of the Month award.

“Edward Jones gives back to our community. Their name is on just about everything, and whenever I ask for something or for their support, they are Johnny-on-the-spot. It is not a hard sell … thank you for being in Farmville,” said Judy Gidley, the director of the Farmville Chamber of Commerce, as she presented the award to financial advisor Neal Fox and senior branch office administrator Sarah Peninger.

Fox and Peninger were honored to receive the coveted award.

“This is a distinction we are proud of,” Fox said, adding he appreciates what the Farmville Chamber of Commerce does and has done for his business and the business community of Farmville. “The chamber, and Judy, does a lot of good for the town.”

In addition to supporting the chamber, Fox has served on the Farmville Community Arts Council board and hosted a Farmville 5K road race for four years to benefit Farmville’s Relay for Life.

Edward Jones is also a fan-favorite spot during the chamber’s annual A Taste of Farmville. Patrons enjoy not only the food and beverages served, but also the firm’s musical entertainment, according to Gidley.

“We love to hear that,” Peninger said.

Fox joined the investment group in 2001. Edward Jones identified a need for a local office in Farmville, and Fox was given the opportunity to establish the branch.

Edward Jones focuses on the individual needs of its clients, Fox explained.

“We determine what is important to them and develop personalized strategies, so they can stay on track and meet their goals,” Fox said.

In his 15-year time in Farmville, Fox has meet a lot of residents. The local office serves approximately 350 to 400 families.

“Since it is just Sarah and I, we are able to provide a personalized touch,” Fox said of their client care. “We want to thank the residents for welcoming us to town, and for staying with us over the years through good and bad markets. We are looking for the years ahead.”

Edward Jones recently renewed its office lease for five more years.

“Thank you for being on this ride with us for 15 years and for all the support you have given us,” Peninger said to the branch’s customers.

“We want to give back to our community, and who doesn’t like ice cream in the summer in the middle of a work day?” Fox asked.

“We want to make sure our clients’ money doesn’t run out in retirement,” Fox said, adding his firm’s services do not end there.
