Cetera announced Wednesday that industry executive Andy Gill has joined the company with oversight for the strategy, marketing, advisor training and education and business consulting teams, according to a company release.

Gill, who left Schwab in July amid a restructuring of top management, will be a member of the executive leadership team, with a dual reporting line to Cetera President Adam Antoniades and interim CEO and Board Chairman Ben Brigeman.

“Andy Gill is an extremely accomplished industry veteran, skilled at driving growth and creating value for clients. He will be integral to Cetera’s mission to extend an advice-centric experience to more clients, helping set and execute a strategic direction that will accelerate the company’s evolution as a next-generation financial advice firm,” Antoniades said in a statement. “Beyond his clear track record of successful execution, Andy brings expertise in areas that are important to the continued growth of our business, particularly in the RIA space.”

During his 18-year tenure at Schwab, Gill held a number of executive leadership positions in retail, product and platforms management, marketing, advice solutions and data, and was a member of the executive council, the release noted. In those roles, Gill was responsible for driving growth in both the traditional and digital channels and integrating them seamlessly for clients, while lowering costs and building brand loyalty.
