Baird | Wealth Management, Capital Markets, Private Equity, Investment Banking Offered by Baird

Branch Support


Our branch support associates are the faces and voices of our organization. These individuals devote the greatest amount of their time and energy working directly with the most important people in our organization: our clients.

Become part of our team and your own branch family. Work in partnership with our expert Financial Advisors, Branch Managers and other team members throughout the broader Baird family to ensure the client comes first. And get to know your clients personally, while helping them realize life goals in a vital branch support role with Baird.

We believe that when you lead with strong relationships, success will follow. You will have the opportunity to work with generations of families to plan for their financial security. And you will be an important part of a privately held, employee-owned firm with exceptional size and resources, which brings unique rewards, including opportunities for growth, development and advancement. Whether you’d like to grow into a leader or maintain a focus on deepening client relationships, Baird is the place to build a career that satisfies on every level.

“I chose financial services because I wanted to make a connection with people. After I graduated college, I defined success for myself. And success was bringing value to other people’s lives. And I felt financial services best fit that need. I get to connect with a big, vast group of different people and it brings joy to my day to day life.

As I work with a number of associates who have been in the industry some time, I bring fresh concepts to the table. And I’m able to relate to a lot of our next generation clients, in a way that our financial advisors aren’t able to. My opinion matters. No thoughts, no idea is below anyone. Everyone at the company from the CEO to my direct associates is willing to hear what I have to say.”
