Lt. Col. Elton Johnson, Jr. Announces Run for FINRA Small Firm Board of Governors Seat.

July 8, 2024



July 7, 2024 -- Lt. Col. Elton Johnson, Jr., a Founding Member of the Financial Professionals Coalition, former owner of, and now, Non-Executive Chairman of Amerivet Securities, Inc., has been a Registered Representative since October 1977. He currently holds the following securities licenses: Series 4, 7, 14, 24, 27, 52, 53, 57, 63, 65, 79, and 99.

Elton Johnson, Jr., currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the Infantry Branch (Airborne Infantry) in the U.S. Army Retired Reserves (USARR), still subject to active-duty military recall, has had a long, continuing, distinguished military career. 

Lt. Col. Johnson, holds several unique “Firsts” in the securities industry.  He was the first Main Principal since WW2 to have his BD placed in an inactive status after he was called up for active military duty due to a war.  He is the first and only Main Principal to operate a BD from a combat zone (Iraq and Afghanistan).  And he is the first and only Main Principal to actively engage in combat while operating a BD (Iraq, 2004).  

He is, and has been, a tireless advocate for diversity at all levels of the securities industry and equality for the small firm community.

Lt. Col. Johnson is running for a Small Firm Board Seat to continue his dedication to diversity at the highest Securities Industry level.

Lt. Col. Johnson, is a 1976 graduate of the University of Notre Dame where he was (1) a Notre Dame Scholar, (2) a Hall President and (3) Chairman of the Hall Presidents’ Council (HPC).  He majored in finance, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He is currently enrolled in American Military University (AMU) where he is pursuing his master’s in business administration.

Lt. Col. Elton Johnson, Jr.'s extensive experience and unique achievements in both the securities industry and the military indeed make him a highly qualified advocate for the small firm community. His tireless work for diversity and his dedication to his profession and country are above reproach.

 As a former FINRA governor (2017-2020), I can state, without reservation, that it is my honor to fully endorse Lt. Col. Elton Johnson’s candidacy for Small Firm Governor.
