Celebrating 50 Years of Education Savings in Bermuda

Charles Jeffers, Executive Sales Representative, Heritage Education Funds International Inc.

Bermuda, April 18, 2019 – Heritage Education Savings Funds International is please to announce a remarkable milestone in the career of Charles Jeffers, Executive Sales Representative, and former Agency Director, Heritage Education Funds International Inc.

April 23, 2019 will mark exactly 50 years since Charles officially launched the Education Savings Plan business in Bermuda. He has since dedicated his career to helping families make post-secondary education possible for their children. With impeccable professionalism and exemplary commitment, Charles quickly touched the lives of many as measured by his many achievements:

  • Eight years of service at the Head Office as Regional Vice President, where he focused on business building as he worked closely with the sales force—some of today's top Branch Directors
  • Lead the start up of some of our international branches
  • Successive years of top personal production in the Bermuda Agency
  • A life-long career that he is still enjoying today

Charles proudest accomplishment is having the privilege to service three generations of customers. He credits his success to the family he treasures – especially his 7 grandchildren who he is immensely proud of – and daily rounds of high-energy squash games. To those who are just embarking on their careers, Charles offers this advice:

"Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined it possible to have a rewarding career that would span 50 years, and continue to enjoy. Helping families in Bermuda make post-secondary education possible is an important part of my life. For those just embarking on your career, know what's important in your life. Dedicate your activities to that purpose; be self disciplined and success will follow."

"Charles stands out as a leader, as a person of great integrity and passion to inspire young people to realize the possibilities that come with a post-secondary education," said George Hopkinson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Heritage Education Funds International Inc. and Knowledge First Financial Inc. "On behalf of the Board of Directors, I offer sincere congratulations to Charles on his 50th anniversary and wish him continued success as he continues his remarkable career."
