Logsdon spent the last decade leading a management services firm which provided temporary CFO and COO solutions for small to medium sized privately held companies. He has served a variety of finance roles throughout his nearly 40-year career including positions as tax accountant in a large public accounting firm, as well as CFO and VP of Finance in the private sector. Logsdon has also purchased, owned and operated a number of businesses. He brings this breadth and depth of business and tax experience to Krilogy.
“As Jay sought to establish himself as a financial advisor, we quickly realized that he was an ideal addition to the Krilogy team,” said Kevin Reynolds, CFP®, CIS™, MBA, Financial Advisor. “He brings a diverse and expansive level of experience with tax strategies, especially for our business clients. These complementary skills, along with his alignment with Krilogy’s culture, allow us to dive even deeper into tax considerations as we prepare financial plans and wealth management strategies for clients.”
Logsdon was attracted to Krilogy’s team-oriented approach, as well as the firm’s size, which allows for specialists in various areas of investment and technology who work together to develop the most appropriate solutions for clients, addressing their entire financial picture.
“Krilogy is a firm with a great deal of positive energy, with a true team approach,” said Logsdon. “This energy stems from the attraction of advisors at all levels, including the young, driven individuals who offer a different perspective in the planning process, as well as the firm’s focus on continuous improvement, growth, and a values-based environment. It’s fun, competitive and always puts the clients first.”
A native of Peoria, Illinois, Logsdon received his BSBA and MBA from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He has called the St. Louis area home since 1976, and currently resides in Wildwood with his wife, Laura.
