President, Private Client Group

Jerome (Jerry) Lombard is President of the Private Client Group at Janney and is a member of the Firm’s Executive Committee. As President of the Private Client Group, Mr. Lombard is responsible for all functions of Janney’s branch offices, Financial Advisors, Branch Managers, and their support teams.

Mr. Lombard has over 30 years of experience at Janney, having joined the Firm in 1983 as a Financial Advisor trainee in its Philadelphia headquarters branch. In 1986, he was named Vice President of Investments—one of the Firm’s youngest advisors to achieve that title. He continued to build his practice, becoming one of the Firm’s top producers.

In 1992, he was given responsibility for the Firm’s Money Management Services unit and was named First Vice President. As he built Janney’s advisory services platform over the next decade, this unit achieved the fastest growth of any of Janney’s business units and has grown from less than $1 million in revenue to over $250 million today, representing the majority of the Private Client Group division’s revenue. In 2004, Mr. Lombard was named President of the Private Client Group.

Mr. Lombard attended LaSalle College prior to joining Janney. Today, he is active in numerous charitable activities and serves on the board of the Philadelphia Sports Congress and the Pennsylvania Advisory Board of the Devereux Foundation. He previously served as Chair of the SIFMA Private Client Services committee and on the board of The Pennsylvania Trust Company.

He lives with his wife of 35 years, Audrey, in Ambler, Pennsylvania. They have three children, one grandson and one granddaughter. Mr. Lombard is an avid golfer and participates in triathlons and long-distance swimming events.
