Thomas P. Hirsch, a 27-year veteran of the financial services industry, was hired by Raymond James & Associates as manager of its Kentucky branch complex.

He will be a producing manager as he will oversee financial advisors serving clients across the state while also serving his own clients as a senior vice president of investments. “I am extremely pleased to welcome Tom to our team,” said Division Director Tash Elwyn in a press release. “He brings a valuable combination of knowledge, experience and, most important, an uncompromising commitment to doing what’s right for the advisors he supports and the clients he serves.”

Hirsch began his financial career with Merrill Lynch, spending 17 years as a director and another 10 years as managing director of the firm’s Louisville complex.

Hirsch is a fixture in the Louisville business community, according to Raymond James. He currently serves as a board member of the Louisville Urban League, a trustee of the Spirit of Louisville Foundation, a member of the Louisville Rotary Club, and as chairman of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Healthcare Foundation.

Last month, Raymond James hired advisors Tony Noisom and Chris Musino from Wells Fargo in Coral Gables, Florida. They will report to Frank Amigo, complex manager for Miami-Dade. Noisom and Musino created the Noisom Wealth Management Group. As a member of Raymond James, the team offers clients customized plans based on their unique needs, which may include asset management services, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, FDIC-insured certificates of deposit and more.

The firm also hired Eileen Lamchick and Susan Rutrough in its Coral Gables operation recently. They had previously been with Young, Stovall and Co. where they specialized in a variety of financial planning services for individuals, families and businesses. At Raymond James, they will be responsible for offering clients customized plans tailored to fit their needs such as asset management services, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and FDIC-insured certificates of deposit.
