Wayne Pennington is working to help Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. build its national footprint in the competitive world of financial services.

It’s a function he knows well, having spent 28 of his 40 years at A.G. Edwards doing the same thing – developing a sophisticated branch office network. In 2009, Wayne retired as a senior vice president and senior branch administrator from Wells Fargo Advisors, which had acquired A.G. Edwards.

During his tenure at A.G. Edwards, he worked as a branch administrator and was instrumental in establishing the firm’s branch and personnel infrastructure in Texas and the upper Midwest. There, just as he does now at Benjamin F. Edwards & Co., Wayne worked with the firm’s regional managers to identify and establish new branch locations and attract new talent.

Wayne is Series 7 and Series 8 licensed.
