Jesse Collier is an agent and producer at GCES, working with our clients and preparing contracts to ensure they are properly set-up for their retirement. Though Jesse is new to the financial world, he is no stranger to putting his best foot forward in a service environment, coming to us complete with five extremely successful years as a car salesman.
For half a decade he spent his days analyzing unique situations to put customers behind the wheel of cars that suited their lifestyles and financial situations. He also has experience in business, distribution and customer service, all of which he uses every day.
Working with others in mind comes naturally to Jesse, and he shows up to work each morning with the goal of helping GCES clients better understand their finances and future options. “I’ve found that whether you gain anything from the appointment or not, the people you work with are so grateful for the guidance and information,” Jesse says. “A reliable source of help can be difficult to find, especially for government workers, so I try to be someone I’d be proud to introduce to those I care about.”
Jesse is originally from Smicksburg, Pennsylvania, which is just 25 miles away from our office in Indiana. Though he’s always expanding his services into states and regions to help as many clients as he can, Indiana County is home, and caring about and contributing to our community comes naturally. Thinking he had fresh ideas to offer, he recently ran for a seat on the Indiana Borough Council. “I wanted to get more involved to show young adults like me that their voice matters. They can make a difference, and it’s important to share our thoughts,” Jesse says.
Being from the area also means that business isn’t solely business for Jesse. It’s personal. He’s beyond proud to offer a diverse range of products that could help anyone who might sit down for a meeting with him. “I’m passionate about family and close friends, which is great because they’re all here. It’s even better because I’m making new ones all the time,” he says.
When he’s not at work, you might find Jesse enjoying some good, old-fashioned, wholesome fun. He plays the drums and the bass guitar and loves jam sessions with friends he’s still connected with from high school. He also stays active, working out and helping his parents renovate homes.
Equally family and process-oriented, Jesse is an invaluable member of our team. “For me, it’s all about transparency and having the kind of character you’d want in a friend or relative,” he says. “That’s the kind of person I want to be.”
