Kim Brown named to Finance & Commerce Top Women in Finance Hall of Fame

Finance & Commerce recently announced this year’s list of Top Women in Finance, and JNBA’s president, Kim Brown, is one of the 45 honorees. While this is an amazing honor in and of itself, there’s even more good news to share: As a three-time honoree, Kim is also being inducted into the Top Women in Finance Hall of Fame. She is just one of five women who have received this recognition since the Hall of Fame began in 2014.

JNBA and Richard S. Brown were named to Barron's list of Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors for 3 consecutive years - 5 years in total, and to Barron's Top 1,200 Financial Advisors in the country for 8 consecutive yearsKim’s colleagues know what a well-deserved honor this is. Since she was recognized as a Top Woman in Finance by Finance and Commerce in 2011 – her first year as JNBA’s president – she has dramatically built upon the groundwork she laid early in her tenure at JNBA, propelling our firm, industry, and community to new heights. Now marking 12 years at JNBA, including the last 7 as president, Kim’s dynamic leadership has been instrumental in our team’s ability to operate as advocates for our clients.

A philosophy of service is also a core to Kim’s character. She is fiercely committed to giving back to her community both locally and globally, serving and holding board positions for numerous nonprofits. She uses her platform to inspire others towards service, including the JNBA team with whom she has fostered a rich culture of giving back. Kim is also a mentor to others in the industry, especially other women. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with Kim for over a decade, and can speak first-hand to what a positive influence she has had on me personally as well as on countless colleagues, clients, and community members.

Congratulations, Kim, we look forward to celebrating this outstanding accomplishment with you when you receive your award in November!
