David mcwilliams was announced as one of the 3 new regional heads today for UBS (UBS has gone to only 3 regions). Mcwilliams will run the central region which is the midwest down to Fl & GA.

A unknown with UBS he was hired from Merrill 6 weeks ago; It sounds like he ran a large region / division with Merrill before.

So far i have heard mixed reviews on him from current / former Merrill people (some said he had a few HR suits against him) whats the community thoughts on him?

Talk about poor timing. I’ll bet he wishes he’d stayed at the mothership after seeing the debacle that’s become UBS.

Any comments on Mcwilliams out there?

David McWilliams was one of the Regional Managers that was downsized from Merill earlier this year (January or so).  He was a good guy.  Rumor was that he was one of the higher paid Managers and that is why he was let go.

Arkansas is right.  He wasn't hired from Merrill.  He had been let go from Merrill several months ago.
