Baird said Wednesday that it added a recruiter from Wells Fargo (WFC) to help it target advisors in the North East. Peter M. Miller (left) came on board the employee-owned wealth management firm as a senior vice president and will be based in St. Louis. Baird’s headquarters are in Milwaukee, and the firm includes about 700 advisors.
“Peter is highly regarded within the industry, and is a strong addition to our Private Wealth Management business and to Baird,” said John Mabee, vice chairman of Baird’s Private Wealth Management group, in a press release. “He brings deep industry knowledge, established relationships with legacy A.G. Edwards advisors and an appreciation for Baird’s unique culture that will help us build on the success we’ve had attracting top talent to best meet the needs of our clients.”
Miller, who has 30 years of industry experience, will help recruit veteran advisors with an intent to open and manage a new wealth management office in the Northeast. He will be working from Baird’s office in St. Louis.
Until recently, Miller was a member of Wells Fargo Advisors’ senior leadership team and led the firm’s Advisor Development Group, which did recruiting, training and development for branch managers and financial advisors.
