My name is Jeff West. I would like to welcome you to my Web site. I joined the organization in 1994 as a financial professional, after a two-year internship program following college. In January of 1998 I was promoted to Divisional Vice President (District Manager) of the Okemos, Michigan office and continued in that role until June of 2003. I am dedicated to helping individuals and businesses build their financial futures. My business focuses on retirement funding and financial strategies both for individuals and small businesses. I am also a Registered Financial Planner with the National Football League Players Association, working with athletes and helping them with their disability income insurance, life insurance and financial planning needs. Being involved in the community is very important to me.   My community activities include:
