Evercore Hires Jewelle Bickford to Help Expand Wealth Advisory

Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Evercore Partners Inc., the investment bank founded by former U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Roger Altman, hired Jewelle Bickford as a partner in its wealth-management unit.

Bickford, 71, was a senior strategist at GenSpring Family Offices, New York-based Evercore said today in a statement. Before joining GenSpring in 2009, she was a global partner at Rothschild Group, where she was head of debt capital markets for its broker-dealer unit. She previously merged her investment-banking firm into Rothschild Inc. in 1994.

Evercore, run by Chief Executive Officer Ralph Schlosstein, has expanded in wealth management through acquisitions and hiring. In December, it purchased San Francisco-based Mt. Eden Investment Advisors LLC, which manages about $645 million. Evercore has hired managing directors for its wealth unit from Bank of America Corp.

“I’ve known Jewelle for years and am confident that her professional experience and range of relationships will enable her to make a significant contribution,” Altman said in the statement.

Bickford will be based in New York and report to Jeff Maurer, CEO of Evercore Wealth Management, according to the statement. She’s on the board of Women for Women International and the Women’s Media Center, the company said. Bickford also is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and founded its task force on the role of women in economic and political development in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, Evercore said.
