Rocky Speight of the financial services firm Edward Jones in Rocky Mount recently won the firm's A.F. McKenzie Award for his exceptional achievement in building client relationships.

Speight was one of 357 of the firm's more than 15,000 financial advisors to receive the A.F. McKenzie award.

“It's truly an honor to receive recognition for building relationships with those clients we serve,” Speight said. “And it's quite inspirational to receive an award named after a firm legend such as Al McKenzie who was dedicated to individual investors and understood each investor's unique financial goals.”

The award is named for Al McKenzie, who developed the firm's training program during his nearly 60 years of service with Edward Jones.

“Rocky's success hinges on his ability to know and understand the financial needs and goals of his clients, long-term individual investors,” said Jim Weddle, the firm's managing partner. “Our clients most appreciate recommendations tailored to their situations and the high level of personal service Rocky provides.”

Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 company, provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. The firm's 15,000-plus financial advisors work directly with more than seven million clients.
