Edward Jones in Overland Park ranks No. 1 in client service excellence for region

Shawn Creger, Betty Nevers and Dan Asikainen of the financial services firm Edward Jones in Overland Park recently received the firm's Client Service Excellence award for being the No. 1 client service provider in their region and in the top 25 percent of client service providers in the country.

"We are honored to receive this award," Creger said. "The Client Service Excellence award is special because it is a direct reflection of the relationships we have with our clients."

Jim Weddle, Edward Jones' managing partner, added, "Shawn, Betty and Dan are outstanding members of the Edward Jones team. While all of our associates understand the value of client service, it's obvious that they have been striving to provide the best service for their clients."

This honor was bestowed upon the team based on the results of a survey in which random clients were asked to rank the service they received from the teams of their local Edward Jones branch offices.

Creger's branch office was one of only 218 branches to receive the award out of the firm's more than 12,000 branch offices.
