    CEO & Founder

    My motto in life is “Love what you do and smile”.

    As the founder and CEO of JBS Financial and with close to 30 years’ experience in financial planning, I see myself as a passionate, resilient leader. Leadership is knowing what your team is going through and ensuring they have a voice; knowing that there is guidance available to them if they need it.

    Our business is all about building relationships, this has helped grow JBS Financial into the thriving and progressive financial advice practice that it is today. Our team are happiest when we know that our clients are achieving their goals. Whether it’s a small win for them or helping them to make a major decision around retirement, the key is our clients know they are a number one priority.

    Phd F.U.N.

    Senior Executive in charge of Fun and Frivolity

    Ted came to JBS in 2013 and is our Senior Executive in charge of Fun and Frivolity. With his button eyes and large smile, he brings joy and happiness to those in the office. He has exceptional qualification and after playing Yogi bear in the movie of the same name alongside Justin Timberlake, he decided that fame and fortune of Hollywood was not for him.

    He is soft and cuddly and seen lounging around on Jen’s desk whenever she is not around. Ted is overbearing and always wants to win at foosball. In fact now that I think about it I’m not sure he does anything other than warm his behind on the heater…..how do I get this job?? And why did I end up writing his bio??
