H. Beck, a US-based advisory firm acquired by Kestra Financial earlier this month, has appointed Michelle Barry as its new president.

Barry, who has an experience of over two decades in the financial services sector, will take up the new role in January next year.

She joins from broker-dealer Hornor, Townsend & Kent (HTK), where she was president and CEO. Previously, she also had stints at Ameritas Life, The Advisor Group, and Salomon Smith Barney.

Kestra Financial CEO James Poer said: “Michelle’s executive experience in the broker-dealer/RIA industry, paired with her expertise in advisor technology and practice management, allows her to hit the ground running and to enhance H. Beck’s value proposition.”

In addition, the firm also announced that Scott Thorson, who has been working at H. Beck since 2013, will retain his position of COO.
