Wilkins Dinner.jpg

The Ballentine Group was proud to have sponsored a table at the Wilkins Legislative and Civic Awards Dinner, hosted by the Riley Institute of Furman University. Held on the first night of the legislative session each year and attended by political, community, and business leaders, the Wilkins Awards Dinner promotes citizenship, public service, and bipartisan governing. Each year one legislator and one civic leader are honored for their leadership, courage, vision, and integrity.

The Ballentine Group believes a well-balanced life is just as important as a correctly balanced portfolio. Putting this idea into practice, Jean recently spent some time out west in the Rocky Mountains. Pictured here in beautiful Estes Park, CO.

Jean and David Kowach.jpg

Recently, Jean had the exclusive opportunity to attend the Higher Education Conference in New York City to further expand her knowledge in the industry, which allows her to continue providing her clients with the most recent sound advice and guidance. Pictured here with David Kowach, Head of Wells Fargo Advisors Private Client Group.


The Ballentine Group attended an "Evening of Excellence" where Jean received recognition for being named a Premier Advisor yet again. The Premier Advisors designation is held by a select group of Financial Advisors within Wells Fargo Advisors and reflects a high level of standards as measured by one or more of the firm's criteria for revenue generation,educational attainment, and client-service best practices. Jean was also named a Financial Advisor Ambassador. The Ambassador Program is a select group of Financial Advisors, managers, and support staff that are asked to share their voice—the voice closest to the client—as it relates to significant firm-wide topics at Wells Fargo Advisors to help improve client service.
