Evercore Wealth Management has named Wendy Barasch partner and head of business development.
Barasch joins from Alliance Bernstein where she has worked for 20 years, most recently as a managing director in the private client business, responsible for hiring and developing teams of financial advisers.
She also led adviser training programmes and served as a wealth management adviser, working with high net worth families, small endowments and foundations.
"Private clients and related institutions are increasingly attracted to our standard of independent advice and investment expertise," says Jeff Maurer, partner and chief executive officer, Evercore Wealth Management. "Wendy’s experience will provide valuable support to our investment advisors and enable us to accelerate the growth of our business."
Barasch will be based in New York and will report directly to Maurer. She will join Evercore Wealth Management at the end of June.
