The wrong COO?

August 31, 2010

CORRECTED – Baird continues sweep of Morgan Stanley talent

(In 6th paragraph, corrects to show that Kovics came from Prudential, not Morgan Stanley)

USA/NEW YORK, Aug 24 (Reuters) – Baird Private Wealth Management said on Tuesday it hired eight advisers and a branch manager from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney to establish new offices in Charleston, South Carolina, and Fort Worth, Texas.

Denise Wypiszenski, Baird Private Wealth’s chief operating officer, spent 15 years at Smith Barney before moving to Baird in November 2009.
