A 37-year Merrill Lynch veteran broker and his son have decided to join the employee unit of Raymond James.

The father-and-son duo of John R. Edgecomb Sr. and John Robb Edgecomb Jr., who managed $150 million at Merrill Lynch, will be joined by senior investment portfolio analyst Evette Mock-Hernandez and client service associate Mia Salomon. The younger Edgecomb will also manage the Raymond James office where they will be working in Austin-Barton Hills, Texas.
