Sallie Krawcheck, one of the financial industry’s most well-known—and controversial—executives has joined the advisory board of Gold Bullion International, the company announced Wednesday.
The appointment of Krawcheck, who was forced out as President of Bank of America’s Global Wealth Management group in September, is effective immediately.
“We’re extremely pleased that Sallie will be lending her exceptional talent to our team of advisors,” Savneet Singh, GBI’s CEO, said in a statement. “She is one of the financial industry’s most influential leaders, and her appointment reinforces the strength and depth of our organization and platform.”
Krawcheck was in charge of global wealth and investment management during her tenure with Bank of America, overseeing $2.2 trillion in total client balances. Before joining BofA, she was CEO and Chairman of Citi Global Wealth Management.
