I am happy to share some exciting news about my summer plans. Starting July 1, I will be continuing my role as principal of McKinley from our new office in Chicago. Accompanied by a growing team, I look forward to leading McKinley’s expansion in the Chicago association community. This is a terrific opportunity to deepen our existing relationships while also growing new opportunities to work together.
McKinley Advisors is the leading consulting firm for associations. We develop and deliver practical, proven solutions that enable mission-driven organizations to maximize member value and their impact on society. Our expanded presence is intended to cultivate stronger connections with our clients and offer them closer access to our expertise and resources, in addition to our team in Washington. The new office is conveniently located at 515 N. State Street, on the 14th floor.
“Jon has been a strategic partner to NAPFA on multiple projects from start to finish. I look forward to getting to work with more McKinley talent and seeing all that they accomplish in Chicago.”
– Geoffrey Brown, CEO, National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA)
I will be joined by a highly capable – and growing – team that represents McKinley’s wide range of services and tailored solutions. The office will initially include Daniel Grainger, project associate, and Jake Stolmeier, M.S., associate director of research. Daniel has been with McKinley since April 2018 and has proven to be an expert in relationship building and project management. Jake joins us with over 10 years of experience in research and analytics, with most of this time focused specifically on associations.
Joining us this fall will be Emily Larson, senior marketing consultant, and Jessica Johnson, M.A., content specialist. Emily brings close to five years of experience on our marketing solutions team, leading long-term marketing and communications-focused projects. Jessica has been with McKinley for a year and a half, writing and editing compelling copy for McKinley and many of our marketing clients.
Together, we look forward to better serving your organization’s needs with this dual presence and are excited for the opportunities on the horizon.
