Pershing has named Lori Hardwick chief operating officer of the Bank of New York Mellon Corp.-owned brokerage and custody services business.
Ms. Hardwick is joining Pershing from Envestnet Inc., a wealth management technology company, and will begin her new role on Feb. 29, according to a company statement Tuesday. She's replacing Lisa Dolly, who last week was appointed Jersey City, N.J.-based Pershing's chief executive officer.
Ms. Hardwick worked for Evestnet for almost 16 years, most recently as president of advisory services for the Chicago-based company, overseeing enterprise relationship management, sales and strategic partnerships, according to the statement. Before that, she was a regional vice president at Nuveen Investments, where she worked with independent advisers in 10 Midwestern states.
