First Republic Continues Expansion In Boston

First Republic Bank, the private banking and wealth management firm, has named Luke Peterson as a managing director for the Boston office. 

Peterson was previously with Wells Fargo Bank where he served as vice president and branch manager in Boston. At First Republic, he will serve as a single point of contact to a team of professionals who provide banking, investment management, trust, brokerage and real estate lending services. 

The appointment is part of an expansion in Boston and just last month the bank hired Lance Mackey, from Citizens Bank, to become a managing director there. 

First Republic has made a number of hires over the past year, including the launch of several new offices across the US. As of 30 September, the bank records $18.5 billion in wealth management assets.
