Cetera Financial Group has restructured its board of directors. The move comes three months after the broker-dealer group, which has about 8,000 affiliated independent advisors, sold a stake to Genstar Capital.
The new board members include Ben Brigeman, a former Charles Schwab executive vice president of retail investor services; Hal Strong, former vice chairman, COO and CFO of Russell Investments; and Gary Michel, former CFO of TravelClick and Register.com. All three are members of Genstar’s strategic advisory board.
Two Genstar executives and Cetera CEO Robert “RJ” Moore also are on the board.
“For the advisors we serve and the clients they support, each of our new board members shares our commitment and passion for delivering on our vision of the Advice-Centric Experience, a model for the future of professional financial guidance that places the focus squarely on advice, as opposed to products or sales,” according to Moore.
“We look forward to continuing to expand our board with additional professionals of the highest caliber of skills and expertise in the future,” he added.
