Evercore Wealth Management Taps Chris Zander to Be CEO

Evercore Wealth Management is getting a new CEO.

The New York-based RIA said Chris Zander, a founding partner and the firm’s current president, will take the chief executive’s reins on Jan. 2 from Jeff Maurer.

Maurer, who has served as CEO since the firm’s founding in 2008, will become chairman. According to its latest Form ADV, filed in April, Evercore Wealth Management had $7.6 billion in assets under management.

Zander will also become CEO of sister firm Evercore Trust Company, a role Maurer had held.

The RIA is the wealth management arm of Evercore, an independent investment bank.

“I would like to congratulate Jeff and Chris on the thoughtfully planned and carefully managed leadership transition at our wealth management and personal fiduciary business,” said Ralph Schlosstein, Evercore’s president and CEO, in the news release announcing the change.

Mauer will be based in the Palm Beach, Fla., office of Evercore Wealth Management and Evercore Trust Company, and will continue to work with the firms’ clients, the release also said.
