First Republic Makes Senior Hire In Boston

First Republic Bank, the San Francisco-headquartered private banking and wealth management division of Merrill Lynch, has appointed Beverly Buker as senior managing director.

In her new role, Buker will be working with high net worth individuals and families, businesses and foundations, providing private banking, private business banking, trust services, and real estate lending services as well as investment management services through the firm’s brokerage affiliate, First Republic Securities Company, the firm said in a statement.

Prior to joining First Republic, Buker spent 20 years with Citi Private Bank, where most recently she worked as regional executive and managing director of the Manhattan region. Prior to that, she was managing director and regional executive of the Boston region.

In other recent hires, back in March First Republic hired Bill Marseilles as a senior relationship manager for its office in Napa, California.
