In 1997, Jerry joined SYM. In 2002, Jerry became COO and was promoted to CEO a year later.

The aspect of his job he likes most is, first and foremost, helping people. He says, “I love helping clients organize and manage their financial affairs for maximum effectiveness.” He thrives on team building, problem solving and mentoring.
