Dorband receives the Edward Jones’ Eagle Award
Edward Jones Financial Advisor Mike Dorband of Belton recently received the firm’s Eagle Award for his "clear vision of both client and business goals" over the past year. Dorband was one of only 1,187 of the firm’s more than 12,000 financial advisors to receive the award.
"When you work for a firm that is known for its outstanding service," Dorband said, "it’s quite an honor to be singled out for your service record."
Jim Weddle, Edward Jones’ managing partner, added, "Mike is an outstanding member of the Edward Jones team who personifies the ideal financial advisor, someone who is 100 percent dedicated to serving the financial needs of his clients. I am very pleased to present this well-deserved award."
