Baird said Monday that it added a team that includes six veteran advisors from Wells Fargo (WFC) with $1.1 billion in client assets. The group, which has close to $5.5 million in yearly fees and commissions, has opened a new office for Baird in Wichita, Kansas.
“The advisors joining our team are extremely talented with decades of industry experience and an excellent cultural fit with Baird’s unique values,” said Steve Stroker, regional director of Baird’s Private Wealth Management business, in a statement.
“We are always looking to expand into new regions where we think it will have a very positive impact on our business. Wichita is a strong market, and we are pleased to now have a presence there,” Stroker said.
The office will include Don Barry, managing director; Jill Docking, senior vice president; Brian Docking, CFP, senior vice president; Phillip Garrison, AAMS, director; Kevin McWhorter, senior vice president; and Suzanne Marshall, vice president.
Barry started his career at A.G. Edwards in 1981.
