Cetera Financial Group said Wednesday that longtime Charles Schwab veteran Andy Gill has joined the company with oversight for the Strategy, Marketing, Advisor Training and Education and Business Consulting teams. The Los Angeles-based registered investment advisor said Gill will be a member of its executive leadership team, with a dual reporting line to Cetera President Adam Antoniades and interim CEO and Chairman of the Board Ben Brigeman.
Antoniades said in a statement that “beyond his clear track record of successful execution, Andy brings expertise in areas that are important to the continued growth of our business, particularly in the RIA space.”
During his 18-year tenure at Schwab, Gill held a number of executive leadership positions in retail, product and platforms management, marketing, advice solutions and data, and was a member of the executive council. In those roles, Gill was responsible for driving growth in both the traditional and digital channels and integrating them seamlessly for clients, while lowering costs and building brand loyalty.
Gill said in a statement that he is “looking forward to contributing to the work underway to help the company in realizing its strategic objectives, bringing strategy and execution more closely together to deliver lasting value to advisors.”
