Lynn Zimmerman and Marian Merrick of the financial services firm Edward Jones, Tamaqua office, have received the firm's Client Service Excellence Award for being the number one service provider in their region.

The honor was bestowed on the team based on the results of a survey, in which random clients were asked to rank the service they received from the teams of their local Edward Jones branch office.

"We are honored to receive this award," noted Zimmerman, who added "The Client Service Excellence Award is special because it is a direct reflection of the relationships we have with our clients."

Jim Weddle, Edward Jones' managing partner, offered "Lynn and Marian are outstanding members of the Edward Jones team. While all of our associates understand the value of client service, it's obvious they have been striving to provide the best service for their clients."

Headquartered in St. Louis, Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States, and, through its affiliates, in Canada.
