Morgan Stanley has hired Wayne Chrebet, National Football League (NFL) veteran and former wide receiver with the New York Jets, to join its global wealth management office in Red Bank, N.J., as a financial advisor.
Chrebet is joining the Moldaver Group, one of Morgan Stanley’s leading wealth management teams, led by Senior Vice President Ed Moldaver. The team consists of six investment professionals.
Moldaver is a member of the Chairman’s Club, Morgan Stanley’s top recognition club for advisors and was recently invited to attend Barron’s Winner’s Circle fourth-annual “Top Advisors Summit,” an exclusive conference for wealth management leaders and industry decision makers.
“We are extremely pleased that Wayne has joined Morgan Stanley,” says Christopher Shaw, Red Bank, N.J., complex manager. “Wayne is well known and respected in our local community and throughout the NFL, and is a valued addition to our team.”
Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Chrebet played in the NFL for 11 seasons (1995-2005) exclusively for the Jets. In 1995, as a walk-on, he earned a spot with the New York Jets as a wide receiver. During his tenure with the Jets, he set the NFL record for the most receptions by a wide receiver in his first two seasons.
In 2004, Sports Illustrated dubbed Mr. Chrebet’s career history as “one of the greatest rags to riches stories in the history of professional sports.” One of his nicknames is “Mr. Third Down.”
