Edward Jones ~ Kris Kumlien

My pursuit of a career in finance began with my education at Montana State University, graduating in 2006 with highest honors and two bachelor's degrees in finance and economics. Post college, I was recruited to Wall Street to work in investment banking, before being swayed to help recover my family’s old business that had fallen into disrepair. After a successful turnaround and subsequent sale of the business, I was provided the opportunity to pursue my original field of study in finance with Edward Jones. I've spent the better part of the last decade building relationships and stewarding the assets of my clients and their businesses here in the Gallatin Valley.

LV Wood

What is now LV Wood was founded in 1985 in Buffalo, NY by master antique & millwork refinisher, Jim Caroll. Mr. Caroll built a thriving business restoring the finishes of priceless antiques, millwork, and flooring in the Gilded Age mansions that line the Olmstead designed Parkways of his hometown. These opulent residences, raised by the industrial and financial elite of the nation in the early 1900’s, provided a unique classroom for Mr. Caroll. He quickly developed a true “reverence for wood” - a term he used often and named his first company after, paying homage to one of the greatest books ever written on wood and its uses, as well as its ability to warm the body and the soul.

Murdoch's is your modern day mercantile with the best selection of clothing, footwear, tools, pet supplies, fencing, power equipment and more. The Murdoch’s story is one of humble beginnings. It is a story about a man, a belief, and the understanding that value is often found in honest, old-fashioned ideas. John Murdoch had been in the ranch and home supply business for some 36 years. He figured there had to be a way to introduce all the good and useful stuff from that tradition to everyday folks like you and me while still maintaining the interest of ranchers. He also figured that if you did the basics right, even when building a retail store, it would succeed.
