In a somewhat unorthodox recruiting move, Baird has hired a two-advisor team from Charles Schwab's private client unit to beef up its Denver operation.
The Capuano Butler Group, formerly of Schwab's high-net-worth network, formally made the leap to Baird on August 11.
Dominic Capuano is a former baseball announcer who came to Schwab in 1996, while Tim Butler spent 18 years at the firm in various capacities, including training other advisors.
Baird currently employs three advisors in Denver under branch manager Richard Palm.
As yet, the employee-owned firm is still a little new to the Rocky Mountain region: Palm also heads up a branch in Boulder and there's a Baird rep in Salt Lake City, but that's about it.
