Leadership Changes

Yonhee Choi Gordon is retiring from JMG Financial Group after an illustrious 38-year career at the firm, during which she began as an entry-level assistant in 1986. Her career has been unique by several standards, evidenced by her being one of the first Korean-American women to rise to the C-suite in the RIA industry. As the first employee to carve a career path for others, Yonhee played a pivotal role in shaping the firm’s culture and workforce, having hired the majority of the current staff and advisors. Her exceptional contributions were recognized in 2018 when she was named a Woman to Watch by InvestmentNews. In addition to her various roles, including serving as a financial advisor, she culminated her career as Principal, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Marketing Officer. She has been a sought-after voice in the industry for decades, having spoken at numerous industry conferences and executive forums. Her efforts have helped bring JMG to being a nationally recognized wealth management firm.

Leaving behind a career of dedication and service and after transitioning her role, Yonhee is stepping down at the end of this year to dedicate more time to her special needs brother and family’s needs. She also plans to continue serving on several boards of non-profit organizations which advocate for college students, children with medical complexities, and families in need of access to financial planning.
