Steve Shmatko Receives Edward Jones Award for Exceptional Achievement in Building Client Relationships

Steve Shmatko of the financial services firm Edward Jones in SunCity/Peoria recently won the firm's Ed Armstrong Award for his exceptional achievement in building client relationships.

Shmatko was one of 1,916 of the firm's more than 15,000 financial advisors to receive the Ed Armstrong award.

The award is named after Ed Armstrong who built a successful branch office and contributed to his community of Grand Island, Neb., since 1977.

"Steve's success hinges on his ability to know and understand the financial needs and goals of his clients, long-term individual investors," said Jim Weddle, the firm's managing partner. "Our clients most appreciate recommendations tailored to their situations and the high level of personal service Steve provides."
