Merrill Lynch Wealth Management has tapped Steve Alch to lead the Southeast Division.
The post opened up when Merrill appointed Eric Schimpf, then in charge of the Southeast region, to co-head the new Advisor Division with Matt Gellene last month. The unit is focused on advisor training and development.
Alch, most recently in charge of the Central Florida Market and Bank of America’s market president for Orlando, now reports to Merrill Lynch Wealth Management President Andy Sieg.
He will manage the Southeast Division from Orlando and continue to be the BofA market chief for Orlando.
