01 Feb Leede Jones Gable Announces New Executive Appointments
Leede Jones Gable is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has appointed Jim Dale as its new Chief Executive Officer, and Robb Hindson as its new Chief Financial Officer. These appointments will become effective once regulatory approval is received.
“Leede Jones Gable is roughly 2.5 times bigger today than it was a little over a year ago and the role of President and CEO has become much larger and more complex. As a result, I have decided to split my role with Jim Dale, our current CFO.” said Bob Harrison, current President and CEO. “Jim and I will continue to work very closely together. Rest assured, I will not be going anywhere.”
Bob Harrison will retain the title of President and will continue to oversee the brokerage side of the business. Jim Dale will have the title of CEO and will be responsible for, amongst other things, strategy and adapting the business to new challenges.
Jim has been CFO since 2003 for Leede Financial Markets prior to its merger with Jones Gable & Company in December, 2015, and for Leede Jones Gable thereafter.
Robb Hindson, former CFO of Jones Gable for approximately 25 years, is going to transition into the role of CFO and will work with Jim on a smooth transition.
“I look forward to working closely with Jim and Robb in their new roles,” said Harrison. “The new appointments will help ensure Leede Jones Gable is well positioned to continue growing our business.”
