RBC Wealth Management, the US brokerage operation of Royal Bank of Canada, has appointed Kirstin Turner and Rob Spawn as managers for its East and West Coast branches respectively.

Turner comes with over 13 years of experience and has managed about 40 brokers at Morgan Stanley.

RBC was quoted by Reuters as saying that Kirstin Turner joined as director to oversee around 100 people including 60 advisers at RBC’s six branches in St Petersburg, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Naples, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach Gardens.

Spawn was hired by RBC in mid-October as senior managing director. He will oversee around 70 advisers and 125 employees overall at its eight-branch San Francisco complex.

Spawn comes with more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, and had previously worked at UBS Wealth Management Americas since 2006.

Both Turner and Spawn report to RBC Wealth Management West and South division director Darryl Traweek. RBC has 200 branch offices in 28 complexes across the US.
