Advisor Group Taps LPL Exec to Serve as Chief of Staff


Advisor Group has hired Amy Hamilton, former executive vice president and chief audit executive for LPL Financial, as the firm’s new chief of staff and head of internal audit. The addition is the latest move in the firm’s efforts to tap top talent and build out its executive ranks in the wake of its acquisition of Ladenburg Thalmann, said President and CEO Jamie Price.

Hamilton will report directly to Price and will become an active member of the executive committee.

The announcement also solidifies the firm’s chief of staff role, which was previously a rotational position, held most recently by Brett Baker, who was named senior vice president of field supervision across all of Advisor Group's subsidiaries, including Securities America, FSC Securities, Royal Alliance, SagePoint Financial, Triad Advisors and Woodbury Financial.
