About Me

Jon began his career with Stifel, Nicolas in Cincinnati, OH over 16 years ago as a stockbroker. He knew that he would enjoy the world of finance much more if he could find a more client-focused approach to offering financial advice and began an exhaustive search for a more suitable firm. Upon interviewing with the top national financial firms, in 2002, Jon found his calling at Summit Financial Group of Cincinnati. In the spring of 2008, Jon decided to purchase the practice entirely and continue its growth to today.

As President, Jon McCardle managed the firm from 2002 to 2008, at which time he purchased the firm. His guidance and diligence, along with the collaborative efforts of his team, have helped the firm grow significantly in the past 10 years.

Since coming to the Lafayette, West Lafayette Community, Jon has taught financial classes and been the keynote speaker for the Town of Delphi, Ivy Tech Community College, Sagamore Surgical Center, Rea Magnet Wire, Fisher’s United Methodist Church, and 2nd Street Baptist Church as well as numerous other companies, churches, and non-profit entities. Jon has also written articles for Doctors of Dentistry Magazine, and Carmel Magazine, and has been listed in the “Who’s Who of the Financial industry”.
