Two advisors generating almost $2 million in annual revenue have joined Baird from Wells Fargo and Stifel, a spokesman said.
In the larger of two moves, wirehouse advisor Kim Giannone joined Baird's new office in Grand Junction, Colo., which is located in the far western part of the Rocky Mountain state.
While at Wells Fargo, she generated $1 million in annual revenue and oversaw $105 million in client assets, according to a Baird spokesman.
Giannone had been at the wirehouse since 1995, according to FINRA BrokerCheck records.
Also on the move, former Stifel advisor Brian Nethery joined Baird in Mequon, Wis., a suburb of Milwaukee, where Baird is based.
Nethery generated $850,000 in annual revenue and oversaw $140 million in client assets while at Stifel, according to Baird.
He started his career at A.G. Edwards in 2000 before moving to Stifel in 2006, according to BrokerCheck records.
A spokeswoman for Wells Fargo confirmed the departure and declined to comment further. A spokesman for Stifel declined to comment.
Baird has nearly 850 advisors and $106 billion in client assets, the firm says. Last year, the firm acquired Seattle-based McAdams Wright Ragen, giving it about 80 additional advisors and seven offices in the Pacific Northwest.
