Federal Street makes senior promotions


Federal Street Advisors, an independent wealth manager for families and foundations, has made a series of promotions that expands its leadership team.

Kristin Fafard, CFA, has been appointed president and chief investment officer. She had been director of research.

Jennifer Christian Murtie, who had been director of client services, has been named chief operating officer.

Emily Bannister, CFA, has been elevated to Fafard’s former role.

Firm founder John LaPann (pictured) remains chairman and will be actively involved in all firm-wide decisions. LaPann also remains on the firm’s investment committee, but has delegated day-to-day management of the firm to Fafard and Murtie, both firm veterans.

“With complete buy-in from our principals, we have added the ‘next generation’ of leadership to the team. These are two extremely capable and passionate professionals who are highly respected by clients and across the industry,” says LaPann. “I’m pleased to have appointed leaders from within.”
