Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners continues to expand its team with the addition of financial industry veterans Jack D. Mounts and Michael Lonk.

Mounts and Lonk, both former executives at Merrill Lynch, will aggressively seek to expand Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners’ advisor force nationwide. Mr. Mounts has been named Managing Director and Head of Recruiting, and Mr. Lonk is Vice President and Senior Recruiter. They will report to Scott Hotham, Executive Vice President and Head of US Private Wealth Management Sales for Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners.

'It was a natural fit to bring Michael and Jack on board to lead the recruiting efforts at Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners. Both have tremendous expertise and will certainly continue our mission of attracting high-caliber team members to represent our brand,' said Stan Gregor, President and Co-Chief Executive of Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners. 'We have seen tremendous growth since the inception of Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners and Michael and Jack will help accelerate that progress.'

'Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners is committed to aggressively growing its national presence and cementing itself as the premier destination for advisors looking to grow their business with a national brand supporting them the entire way,' adds Hotham. 'We look forward to seeing the type of talent that Michael and Jack will attract to the firm.'

Mounts most recently served as Director of Recruiting for Merrill Lynch in the Southeast, South Atlantic and Pacific West markets. In addition to his 21-year career at Merrill Lynch, he worked at Prudential Securities in several capacities, and has worked as a financial advisor, manager and recruiting director.
