In Atlanta, Lyons will work with branch manager Todd Wiggins to help develop Oppenheimer's client base in one of the Firm's key growth areas, while continuing to support investment strategy for clients. In New York, Oppenheimer's largest Private Client Division office, Yadgaroff will report directly to Chad Allen, who was recently recognized as one of On Wall Street's 2016 "Top 10 branch managers."
