May 01, 2017

Cambridge recently announced the winners of the 2017 annual Jim Guy Memorial Scholarship.

Each year, the program honors the loss of former Cambridge executive Jim Guy by awarding two $1,000 educational scholarships to the son or daughter of a Cambridge independent financial advisor as well as the son or daughter of a Cambridge home office associate.

The Cambridge Foundation is pleased to name the following as the 2017 scholarship recipients:

Ginger Markow, daughter of Cambridge independent financial advisor Ted Markow of Markow Financial Group, Inc. During high school, Markow was a member on the debate, speech, and track and field teams. She also volunteered at Julia’s Place, an organization that provides shelter, programs, and resources for families experiencing homelessness. She qualified for the Washington state track and field competition three times and is currently ranked among the top ten pole vault competitors in the nation. Markow plans to attend the University of Washington.

Brianne Bender, daughter of Cambridge home office associate Troy Bender. Throughout high school, Bender has participated as a member of the Oak Park Marching and Symphonic band, show choir, and theater. Her extracurricular involvement includes membership of the National Honor Society and volunteering as a tutor at Oak Park Pre-School through Missouri A+, a statewide program designed to provide quality education to all students in Missouri. Bender plans to attend Northwest Missouri State University.


About Jim Guy

Jim Guy joined Cambridge’s executive group in 1999 and served at the broker-dealer level while continuing to lead his independent practice based in Baltimore alongside his wife and business partner, Helen.

In that time, Guy was a major force on the Cambridge Board of Directors and provided senior executive leadership for Cambridge’s recruiting and marketing.

Guy was instrumental in the development of Cambridge’s fee-based programs, and he also focused on supporting and improving the independent rep-advisor’s business through practice management, marketing initiatives, and product services that help streamline operations, accelerate revenue growth, and build practice equity, all of which were driven by his personal and professional conviction for business continuity and succession planning. The hearts and minds of those associated with Cambridge hold fond memories of Guy as their dear friend and colleague and are proud to honor his legacy with Cambridge’s Jim Guy Memorial Scholarship program.

The program awards at least two $1,000 scholarships annually to the son or daughter of a Cambridge associate and son or daughter of an independent financial advisor.
