Baird announced it has named a veteran UBS complex director as branch manager.

After nearly 40 years of industry experience – of which almost 20 years were as a complex director for UBS, according to his LinkedIn profile – Mark Kenyon has moved to Baird. He joins Baird's Minnetonka, Minn., wealth management office as senior vice president and branch manager, the firm said.

Kenyon replaces Larry Law, the firm's previous branch manager, who will continue working with clients as a financial advisor, according to a statement from the firm. Law "is looking to focus directly on serving the needs of his clients," a Baird spokesman said in an email.

"Larry Law has done a great job in opening up an office for Baird in Minnetonka and is very supportive," Steve Stroker, a regional director in Denver said in an emailed statement. "Larry will continue to be a FA in the office and we look forward to working with Larry many more years."

Prior to joining UBS in 1995, Kenyon began his career in the financial services industry in 1975 with E.F. Hutton & Co., which later became Shearson Lehman and Smith Barney in 1993, according to FINRA's BrokerCheck.

Other recent hires at Baird include a Morgan Stanley advisor managing $260 million in client assets and a UBS team with more than $2 million in annual revenue, according to the firm.
