Focus Financial Partners has recruited advisor Debra Brede away from Commonwealth Financial Network, the firm she was affiliated with for the past 30 years.
Brede and the rest of her nine-person team are joining Focus partner firm GW & Wade in Wellesley, Massachusetts. They work with $926 million of assets.
“We are thrilled that Debra and her team will be joining GW & Wade,” said Focus CEO and Chairman Rudy Adolf, in a statement.
“This transaction will expand GW & Wade’s deep bench of talent. It will also further increase GW & Wade’s scale and expand its footprint in the Northeast, which is a sophisticated and growing wealth management market,” Adolf said.
Brede said in a statement that moving to GW & Wade “allows me to continue serving my clients while also preserving the legacy and reputation that I have built over my 35-year career.”
