Don Carter
Director / Leader for Key Relationships

Don Carter, Director for Key RelationshipsDon has had a career at the ground floor in the development of a key component of the financial services industry. But he began with decorated service in the US Army where he was awarded the Bronze Star for valor in the Vietnam War. After an honorable discharge from the service he joined and spent a brief time as a marketing manager at Stauffer Chemical.

When he left Stauffer to open the Edward Jones branch office in Conroe, it was the 430th branch office of a then small investment services business. Over the next 40 years that fledging business would grow meteorically to become the fourth largest financial services firm in the U.S. with over 11,000 locations and nearly 7 million clients worldwide and Don would play a key part in all of that growth. In addition to serving investors in the Conroe area, Don served on the firm’s hiring team, worked as a trainer and mentor for new financial advisors, and participated in many corporate taskforces. In 1991 Don served as regional leader for a large portion of southeast Texas; and in 1994 he was named a General Partner. During his career with Jones, Don received many awards and recognitions, including: Partners Award, the Jack Phelan Award, the Managing Partners Award, Top Producer (several years). One of his personal goals with Jones has been leadership participation in the firm’s Business Diversification Program trips which recognize and reward financial advisors who build and run successful businesses. During his tenure with Jones he made all but one of these reward travel trips.

While Don worked hard for Jones, he has also given back to his community. He has served with Rotary International and the Montgomery County Community Foundation. He has been a huge force with the youth of the area including sponsorships for area sports, notably with the Montgomery County Fair Youth programs. Don’s generosity is well known throughout the region. Don has joined the Lake Conroe Communities Network out of deep passion for the development of the region and the importance of water management to that development. He seeks to bring his network of relationships to bear on education and mobilization of citizen leadership of the community, many of whom have been his customers for decades.
