Jesse T. Ellington, III

Senior Vice President, Chief Investment Officer, Head of Asset Management Services

The markets can be so rewarding and so frustrating, and that dynamic makes every day interesting to Jess. He wakes up every morning ready to pick the next great stock. 

Jess started out his career as an analyst with a major financial institution perfecting the craft of digging into companies, moved to the investment management consulting business where understanding proper asset allocation was key, and spent 12 years running a hedge fund and honing his macro skills. He brings all that experience to Middleburg Financial in his role of Chief Investment Officer. 

In his free time, Jess gives his competitive spirit a workout. He has competed in multiple marathons, triathlons and endurance challenges. While he loves travelling the world looking for investment ideas and immersing himself in varied cultures, family is most important to Jess. Helping to raise three boys has definitely been the most exciting and rewarding activity outside his work.
