Scott E. Jones*
Scott is solutions-driven, not product-driven. To him, no professional should ever push a product; they should only find the best solution for a client. This mindset governs the way Scott approaches business. His focus is to always conceptualize the best possible scenario for a client and then offer products that fit that scenario.
A graduate of Texas Tech University, Scott began his career as a top Business Development Manager for Maryland based, TEKsystems. Scott also was the leading Business Development Manager for the Valuation Services Group of KPMG Consulting, now known as Bearing Point.

A result of this experience highlighted the idea that quality advice and action could impact a family for multiple generations.
After years of friendship and working together, Scott and Joe formed Jones / Halder & Associates. Together, they have developed strong and varying areas of expertise, including Group Benefit Analysis and Implementation, Personal Finance Planning, Estate Analysis, and Family Business Succession Planning.
