Evercore Wealth Management has appointed John Sawin as a vice president and financial advisor at the San Francisco office of the firm.

Sawin worked for five years as an investment banker in the global technology group at Barclays, serving on teams that underwrote IPOs for Facebook, Intermolecular, RPX, NXP Semiconductors, and Sensata Technologies and advised Motorola on the spin-off and subsequent sale of its mobility unit to Google.

He earlier worked at Lehman Brothers in New York as an investment banking analyst in the global industrials group.

"We welcome John to our San Francisco team," said Evercore Wealth Management CEO Jeff Maurer. "His investment banking experience and extensive contacts with local technology and venture capital firms will contribute to our efforts to bring our client-focused wealth management services to that community and enhance both our national practice and the rapidly growing Evercore office in Menlo Park."

Sawin will report to Iain Silverthorne, a partner and wealth advisor at Evercore Wealth Management.
