Two broker teams that managed $345 million in assets at Wells Fargo Advisors in Baton Rouge, La., have joined the employee unit of Raymond James.

W. Bowen McRae Jr. managed almost $200 million with his associate Shirley Cook.

Roger Sullivan and Kyle Hawthorne, who managed approximately $145 million in client assets at Wells Fargo, left with their associate Meg Martinez.

Mr. McRae began his financial services career in 2007 at A.G. Edwards, a predecessor firm of Wells Fargo. Prior to that, he spent 10 years practicing law in Baton Rouge.

Mr. Sullivan also began his financial services career at A.G. Edwards — in 2000 — after having spent five years as a hospital pharmacist and 22 years as a minister.

Mr. Hawthorne began his financial services career in 2014 at Wells Fargo following a six-year career as an attorney.
