Baird said Friday that it hired Karen Heintz, a former branch manager with UBS, to lead its Edina, Minn.-based wealth management office.
Heintz most recently managed a UBS branch in St. Paul, Minn., with 24 financial advisors managing $3.1 billion in client assets.
Employee-owened Baird says it has about 35 advisors working in the Twin Cities area, a wealth management office in Minnetonka, Minn., and a fixed-income office in Edina.
“Karen brings with her a unique depth and breadth of experience in financial services and human resource management,” said Erik Dahlberg, regional director for Baird’s Private Wealth Management group, in a press release. “She is widely known in the Twin Cities for her support of financial advisors, enabling her to attract talent and help advisors expand their business.”
