Additionally, four senior wealth advisors have also been hired for Wilmington Trust’s expansion in the Washington, DC region.

Prior to the new role, LaFond oversaw a team of wealth specialists in the company’s Delaware region with expertise in planning, fiduciary services, investments, and private banking.

He has more than 15 years of experience in investment management and financial planning specializing in risk management, estate planning, and investment services.

The four senior wealth advisors who have been hired for Wilmington Trust’s DC office are Al Behar, JD, vice president and senior private client fiduciary advisor, Bruce Hoffmeister, JD, vice president and senior financial planner, Eric Schoener, vice president and senior private client advisor and Jast Sohi, vice president and senior private banker.

The four advisors join from Wells Fargo Private Bank.

"As we expand our presence in the D.C. and Richmond markets with the combined strength of M&T and Wilmington Trust, the experience of both companies will be a driving force in the wealth management services we provide to our clients," remarked Mark Graham, executive vice president and head of Wilmington Trust’s Wealth Advisory.
