Glenn Flego, who has been in the financial services industry for more than three decades, has joined Ameriprise as its franchise field vice president, the company says in a press release.
In his new role, Flego will oversee 300 franchise advisors in New Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania, according to Ameriprise. He will report to regional vice president Tom North.
Before joining Ameriprise, Flego served as the regional director for the Northeast at Raymond James, tasked with recruiting and supporting RIAs and hybrid advisors, according to the press release.
“I wanted to be with a firm that understood where the puck is going with advice,” Flego says in the press release. “The breadth and depth of Ameriprise’s offering, combined with the rich culture and heritage engrained in the people here, make me excited about this new role and the opportunity for advisors at Ameriprise.”
Last month, Ameriprise nabbed several financial advisors from MassMutual as well as from Wells Fargo. Since the end of October, Ameriprise has also added brokers from Merrill Lynch, LPL Financial and Edward Jones but gave up advisors to LPL and Integrated Partners.
