Penrod Financial Group - Becky Penrod

Becky Penrod

She is Co-Founder of Penrod Financial Group. She brings 35 years of real-world experience to the table for the benefit of her clients. She has seen investment fads come and go while personally witnessing what has worked and what has not worked over several market cycles. Besides a grounded historical perspective on the markets and investments, this extensive experience has shown her what clients really want and need. Experience has taught Becky how to speak (communicate) with clients and in a way to make important facts and decisions easier, rather than harder. She appreciates that a good advisor makes the complicated simple so the clients understand facts and concepts that enable them to make informed decisions and avoid costly mistakes. Becky is especially helpful when empowering women by giving them the resources and confidence to make financial choices. “You can make things complicated or you can make things simple. Making things simple is harder, BUT, that is my job."

 

Megan Plate

In Junior High, a representative from Emerson Electric came to Megan's class and put on a mock stock contest. It was really interesting to her when she researched company ideas and talked them through with her Dad. When she was awarded first place in the mock contest, she knew that she wanted to be a stock broker. She went to college and received a degree in Business Administration with an Emphasis in Finance. After graduation, she went to work in the financial industry. Megan worked her way up and earned her licenses. In 2004, she started her own Edward Jones office from scratch. In 2010, she moved to Penrod Financial Group. She loves being with a conservative locally-owned company that takes pride in their customer service. Everyday she gets to help people reach their financial goals and is still able to research company ideas. With that said, she doesn't consider herself a stock broker because she doesn’t just sell stocks. Megan likes to take time with her clients to sit down and get to know them. Then, she can recommend what is needed and wanted. Everyone is different. She is very happy the Emerson Electric representative came to her class because she learned very early in life what her passion is and she truly loves her career. "I would not like to be doing anything else. 15 years down and many more to go."
