The School of Business honored inductee David "Dave" A. Mayo, Sr. at the SIUE Alumni Hall of Fame Awards Dinner on October 2, 2015 at the Morris University Center.
Dave Mayo started his career in information systems in 1981 at Worldwide Insurance after transitioning from a music career. In 1994, Mayo joined Edward Jones as director of finance/human resource systems. He was named a partner in 2001. In 2008, he took responsibility for information systems strategic delivery and joined the division’s executive team. Under Mayo’s leadership, Edward Jones’ industry technology ranking jumped from last place to first place within five years.
“This is a great honor,” Mayo said. “I remember praying to get through tests, and if I did, promising that I would give back to SIUE. So, now I’m trying to give back so that students learn the right way to do things.”
Mayo incorporates his passion for the arts by giving back to the community. He served as Edward Jones’ partner chair for the annual 2012 Arts and Education Council fundraiser. Mayo continues to pursue his love of music, performing as a percussionist and timpanist.
