Cetera Appoints Vice President, Head Of Wealth Management

Cetera Financial Group, the California-based family of broker-dealers that provide wealth management and advisory platforms, has appointed Steve Dunlap as executive vice president and head of wealth management, reporting to chief executive Valerie Brown.

Dunlap will be responsible for the strategic development and expansion of Cetera’s wealth management services. He replaces Barnaby Grist, who will be leaving Cetera at the end of the month.

Most recently, Dunlap served as president and chief executive of Lockwood Advisors, which operates as the retail distribution arm of BNY Mellon, and as president of managed investments at the company’s Pershing unit.

Prior to joining Pershing, Dunlap was president of Finetre Corporation, a supplier of software and e-commerce solutions to the financial sector, where he led the development and implementation of the start-up company’s strategy.

In September 2012, Cetera Financial Group implemented a unifying brand structure, which involved changing the names of its four broker-dealer firms (view details here).
