– Mary Ellen Stanek, CFA, Chief Investment Advisor
Meaningful experience, complementary perspectives and diverse backgrounds inform the expertise of our investment and client service professionals. Consistently led by Mary Ellen Stanek and a core team of senior managers, who together forged our investment philosophy and guiding principles more than 35 years ago, Baird Advisors has tested and reaffirmed those ideas through some of the most challenging markets in history. Being nationally recognized as a great place to work enables the team to attract and retain both highly-seasoned and younger investment talent. And because Baird is employee-owned and independent, our interests naturally align with the clients we serve.
