Raymond James, which moved some staffers and operations last week due to Hurricane Irma, says its corporate headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida, reopened on Thursday. The firm says it should return to its “normal operations” by Monday and pledged support for general relief efforts and staff needs.
“I’m happy to say that our planning and exercises anticipating a variety of crisis situations paid off during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,” said CEO Paul Reilly, in a statement.
As Hurricane Irma approached Florida late last week, Raymond James announced that it was relocating critical business operations out of the area. Some personnel went to Memphis, Tennessee, as well as to Detroit and Denver, where the company has facilities.
