MINDEN, Louisiana, July 16, 2019 – Argent Advisors, a division of Argent Financial Group, announced today that Jeremy Pendergrass has joined the company’s Minden office as operations manager.

At Argent Advisors, a registered investment advisory firm focused on serving individual clients, Pendergrass will initially help enhance processes and workflows in the office as he pursues his Series 65 license. Once licensed, he will join his father and brother on the advisor team.

“Jeremy’s experience and accomplishments make him ideally suited to assist clients in navigating investment hurdles and preserving their assets for the next generation,” said Ty Pendergrass. “Having said that, as a father, I couldn’t be more proud to be working with Jeremy and my other son, Andy, under the same roof.”

Pendergrass comes back to Argent from Riverstone Software, where he served as CEO for the startup software company. Before that, he served as organizational leader at The Bridge Community Church in Ruston.

He began his professional career at Argent as a property consultant for Argent Property Services, now known as Argent Mineral Management. During his previous tenure at the company, he was part of the significant growth of the business that came during the Haynesville Shale boom and eventually served as president of the mineral division.

“I’m excited to continue my career by returning to the company where I got my start, and thankful for the opportunity to work alongside my father and brother — that’s something I’ve hoped for a long time,” said Jeremy. “Argent has grown in leaps and bounds since I previously worked here, and I’m thrilled to be rejoining this thriving company. I’m looking forward to becoming an active member of the community through the work we do for our clients.”

Pendergrass is a Minden native and attended Louisiana Tech University, graduating in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in history. He currently lives in nearby Ruston, which is also the home of Argent Financial Group’s corporate office.
