LPL Financial Planners Branden Mann and Justin Jones play the long game.

Mann and Jones’ military and combat experiences molded each of them into  detail-oriented and goal-based individuals. It’s through these lenses that each financial planner implements an intentional, multi-step approach to serving their clients. 

The first order of business is to identify their clients’ unique goals. Based on this information, a tailored portfolio of products and services will be presented. Together, financial planner and client will discuss how to work towards success. With all parties committed, the plan is implemented. From that point forward, the financial planner will monitor client progress, and, most importantly, address issues and celebrate wins.

Mann and Jones will strive to take actions in pursuit of their clients’ defined goals and will advise their clients in a relevant capacity. As well, each financial planner will act as a continued reminder of the importance of maintaining a disciplined strategy while in pursuit of investing goals.

LPL Financial Planners Branden Mann and Justin Jones operate independently as Citizens Financial Services (CFS). LPL is our Broker-dealer. CFS was established in 2005. CFS and Citizens National Bank of Hillsboro, Texas are sister companies.

In 2009, Branden earned a B.S. in Health Science from Trident University and, later, an MBA from the University of Phoenix. Branden has worked in the financial services industry since 2010, and he joined CFS in 2017.

LPL Financial Planner

Justin was raised in Central Texas before a stint in the Air Force from 2002-2006. He later received a B.S. in Biology and then a Masters in Physics from Western Governors University.

Seeking further opportunity, Justin entered the financial services industry in the Fall of 2019. Justin was subsequently hired by CFS in the Fall of 2020. It was Justin's ideology towards investing that caught the attention of CFS. He follows the same strategy that CFS embodies - to advise his clients in a relevant capacity, to strive to keep his clients focused, and to act as a reminder of the importance of maintaining a disciplined approach to investing.
