LPL Financial has added two industry veterans to its leadership team, as it continues to beef up its technology and wealth platforms, according to a news release.

Cory Triolo, who spent 18 years overseeing digital client experience at Bank of America for its Merrill Edge unit, joins as executive vice president, user experience and research; and Tim Checko, who served as managing director of advisor platforms and oversaw the creation of products and experiences at Merrill Lynch for nearly 15 years, joins as executive vice president, advisor experience.

Triolo and Chacko will be a part of the firm’s investor and investment solutions leadership team. They follow Kabir Sethi, who joined LPL last April as chief product officer. Sethi had been with Merrill Lynch since 2004, where he oversaw the firm’s digital platforms serving the wealth management business, including the financial advisor and client experience, wealth planning and advisor digital presence and acquisition.

Triolo will be responsible for leading the design of web-based and mobile applications used by financial advisors, institutional program managers and end investors, the release said, adding that his focus will be on “intuitive design, ease of use and accessibility."

Checko “will guide the development and operational management of technology and investment products and solutions designed to help LPL advisors and institutions more efficiently serve their clients,” the release said.

“LPL is continuing to develop a world-class, client-centered platform that equips advisors and institutions with differentiated capabilities to serve their clients at scale, while continuing to manage and grow their business,” Sethi said in a statement. “Cory’s track record of building successful platforms across digital banking and wealth management combined with Tim’s expertise delivering products and experiences across wealth management and consumer banking will help LPL continue to deliver innovative advisor and end-client experiences,” he added.
