Steward Partners Global Advisory LLC, an independent partnership associated with Raymond James Financial Services Inc., announced it has named Christopher Davis its new divisional president for Steward Partners.

Davis, who has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, most recently served as market manager for Wells Fargo.

“Chris is an amazing talent with a deep understanding of the New York and New Jersey financial landscape,” said Steward Partners’ President Hy Saporta. “Steward is growing in the northeast faster than ever and having someone like Chris at the helm will help ensure our future success in the region. We are excited to welcome him to the team and look forward supporting him in his new role.”

In his new role, Davis will oversee growth and development of Steward’s markets in New York and New Jersey, which includes Paramus and Morristown, and New York City. He will also coordinate team strategy and training, oversee the company’s advisory team and direct team growth.

“Steward Partners’ vision to change the traditional financial advisor experience was one of the reasons why this was an easy decision for me,” Davis said. “The firm’s growth has been virtually unmatched, and with the support of such a strong management team and an ally like Raymond James, I couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds.”
