Oct 26 (Reuters) - Robert W. Baird & Co said on Friday it hired a veteran branch manager in Minnesota from UBS Wealth Management Americas.
Karen Heintz joined Baird on Thursday from the St. Paul branch of UBS , where she supervised 24 financial advisers who managed $3.1 billion in client assets.
Heintz, who will manage Baird’s Edina, Minnesota, office, spent eight years at UBS, where she also held roles as a complex manager and financial adviser.
Regulatory records show that earlier in her career she worked at Piper Jaffray & Co and RBC Dain Rauscher, which is now known as RBC Wealth Management.
UBS could not immediately be reached for comment.
Milwaukee-based Baird currently has about 700 advisers across the United States.
