Evercore Wealth Management has appointed Jill Faherty Lloyd as a managing director and financial adviser.
She will help expand the firm's Wise Women investor education programme, working closely with investment, planning and fiduciary professionals.
Lloyd previously worked as an institutional equities salesperson at Credit Lyonnais Securities USA and Bear Stearns, and as a financial analyst at a hedge fund.
Prior to joining Evercore, she built an interior design business and served as the president of the board at ASAP!, a Connecticut non-profit that fosters creative, hands-on learning through the arts.
"We welcome Jill to our growing national team," says Evercore Wealth Management CEO Jeff Maurer. "Her diverse experience in finance, business, and non-profit organisations further strengthens our educational programs in general and our Wise Women programme in particular."
Lloyd is based in New York City and reports to Jay Springer, a partner at Evercore Wealth Management.
