John R Exley III has been in the financial industry for the last 25 years. During that time, Mr. Exley was the owner of multiple OSJ's for different regional Broker Dealers. As a registered Representative, he was responsible for training the sales force and he was the number one producing representative out of 690 Brokers for 9 out of the last 11 years. When starting Acorn Management Partners, he realized the inability of most Investor Relations Companies to execute their duties mainly because of the basic lack of understanding the Financial Markets (Global, Institutional, Broker Dealers and Registered Reps) and the seemingly disregard of the current shareholder base. Mr. Exley put together a team of professionals with extensive market knowledge and contacts around the world that clearly understand the goal building a public market and how to achieve that goal through series 7 financial professionals. John and his team have created a new paradigm, "Professional Relations".
As President of Acorn Management Partners in Alpharetta Georgia, Gregory S. Lowe has worked in the financial sector for the last 27 years and as a license financial advisor and Senior Vice-President within the brokerage industry for over 17 years. Gregory has developed and managed Private Client Services as well as handled Institutional accounts for several regional firms. After watching the markets evolve over the years Gregory could see that the Investor Relations Industry was not evolving at the same pace. Gregory is using his knowledge, experience, and work ethic along with his partners to create a new perception of what investor relations should be, "Professional Relations".
