Wilmington expands wealth advisory services in Atlanta


Wilmington Trust, a US-based wealth management company, has added five professionals to its growing team in Atlanta.

The new hires come on the heels of the addition of three executives last month, led by D. Jack Sawyer Jr. who was named president of the Southeast for Wilmington Trust FSB and head of the company’s wealth advisory services business in the region.

"With more than a century of experience and many client relationships that span generations in affluent families, the Wilmington Trust corporate family is well-positioned to serve high-net-worth clients and institutional investors in Atlanta and the Southeast," says Sawyer. "Bringing such experienced and talented wealth advisors into our company at this time underscores our commitment to serve clients in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. We plan to continue building our team in the coming weeks and months."

Wilmington Trust’s newly hired professionals in Atlanta are Donna G. Barwick, vice president and senior fiduciary officer; Rebecca S. Bily, event planning coordinator and marketing representative; Cheryl L. Fairbanks, assistant vice president and senior client services officer; Jared B. Milbury, vice president and senior private client adviser; and William B. Schwartz, III, vice president and senior private client adviser.

Barwick joins Wilmington Trust from BNY Mellon Wealth Management in Atlanta, where she served as a senior director advising individuals and families on wealth planning and estate planning strategies. Earlier in her career, she was with The Arden Group, an Atlanta-based wealth manager founded by Sawyer.

Bily comes to Wilmington Trust from BNY Mellon in Atlanta. Prior to her financial services career, Bily spent ten years in the hospitality industry.

Fairbanks also joins Wilmington Trust from BNY Mellon in Atlanta, where she was a portfolio officer. Earlier, she worked for Jones and Kolb, CPAs in Atlanta.

Milbury comes to Wilmington Trust from Northwestern Mutual in Atlanta, where he was a managing director. He was also an attorney with the Atlanta law firms of Parker Hudson Rainer & Dobbs and King & Spalding.

Schwartz joins Wilmington Trust from BNY Mellon in Atlanta, where he was a senior director of business development. Prior to that, he spent 27 years with Wachovia Bank and its acquired Offitbank, where he was senior vice president and managing director of the private client group.

Wilmington Trust’s wealth advisory services business offers a range of personal trust, financial planning, fiduciary, asset management, and family office services that help high-net-worth individuals and families grow, preserve, and transfer wealth.
