Our Board Of Directors

Greg West: President

"I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2007, opening the firm’s fifth branch office in Lakeland. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.  I have been an active member of BLFS since 2008, and served on it's Board in various roles. "
