Raymond James announced several new appointments in both information technology and operations in what the firm said was a sign of the firm’s “commitment to support its advisors” with leading technology and service.
Vincent Campagnoli was named senior vice president, head of Private Client Group technology strategy and development. He reports to Chet Helck, the firm’s chief operating officer and head of the Private Client Group.
Prior to joining Raymond James, Campagnoli held senior positions at UBS Wealth Management Americas, Morgan Stanley and Prudential/Wachovia Securities.
Sateesh Prabakaran was appointed chief architect, heading key areas including architecture, enterprise data and database administration. Prabakaran was previously at BNY Mellon, where he served as chief architect and managing director.
Joe Meyer also joined the advisor technology support team at Raymond James, named to the new position of technology consultant. In his new role, he will “help advisors evaluate the most appropriate reporting, planning, discretionary trading and CRM systems,” according to the firm’s statement. Meyer was already working on technology within the firm, having worked with key Raymond James business units such as asset management, alternative investments, mutual fund research and compliance.
Earlier this year, Greg Rust was named senior vice president, operations-service delivery, according to the statement. That position — also new — involves working with the firm’s advisor departments to help streamline and coordinate operations.
David Allen was named Chief Technology Officer, architecture and core services, in October. Previously, Allen had been working on software development for the company, and before that he worked for IBM.
