Experience and Background
I grew up near Souris, Manitoba, Canada, where my parents Bob and Joyce Gordon raised purebred livestock and farmed. I have many fond memories on the farm and showing livestock all over North America. After graduating from high school in 1989, I attended North Dakota State University for two years, and then Oklahoma State University for two years, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science majoring in animal science and a minor in business administration. I really enjoyed my economics classes while attending college.
My first career was working with Alta Genetics, an artificial insemination company for cattle. I was marketing manager and then sire selector for 10 years. I enjoyed the opportunity to travel and visit many great cattle operations, however when our division was sold in 2002, I felt it was a perfect time to transition to a new career opportunity I was interested in – investing. My career with Edward Jones has allowed me to continue working with great people, while traveling less in order to devote time to raising my family.
My wife, Kindra, and I have been married since 1998, and we have four children. She also grew up in agriculture and has worked as a freelance ag writer. Our son, Bridger, and daughter, Danika, are both in college. Our daughter, Matea, and son, Bennett, live at home and attend school in Sturgis. We enjoy working together as a family, and the kids are active in 4-H and FFA raising and showing meat goats.
As for investing, I enjoy visiting with customers and helping them evaluate their goals to put a financial strategies in place to help achieve those goals. With investing, I realize a lot of events are out of our control, but if we focus on what we can do that is where we can make a difference. My branch office assistants, Rachelle and Carol, have been great to work with over the years and are dedicated to serving clients. We view our role as coaches, and focus on three F’s: Your Family’s Financial Future is important to us.
