A Lehigh Valley-native, Jeff comes from a family involved in the investment industry since 1946. In 1975, he joined his father, Tom Bogert, as a partner in the locally owned investment firm, Warren W York & Co. Inc. The firm’s indelible mark on the community — helping provide the financing for many of the local schools, hospitals, cities, counties, and sewer and water authorities for more than three decades from the 1960s through the 1980s — continues to form Jeff’s investment philosophy today. With every decision and relationship, Jeff seeks to preserve principal while providing consistent cash flow and income.When Warren W York & Co. was sold to Legg Mason in 1986, Jeff’s continued dedication to outstanding service and investment management was repeatedly recognized throughout his time with the firm. Looking to further enhance his client service model, Jeff formed an investment team in 1997 within Legg Mason, which he expanded during the merger with Smith Barney. In 2009, Jeff moved Magellan Financial to Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, where it is today.
