KMS Financial Services, an independent broker-dealer owned by Ladenburg Thalmann, has named Erinn Ford to the role of CEO. Ford will take the reins from Eric Westberg, who will become chairman emeritus.
“The decision to offer Erinn the CEO position was an easy one, due to her deep appreciation of our history and culture, and because of the tremendous contributions she has made to the firm over the past year as president,” according to Westberg.
Earlier, Ford was president of Cetera Advisors (May 2014 to February 2018), after serving in other roles since January 2012. She also worked for Pacific West Financial Group from 1990 to 2012.
