Barclays Wealth is on a hiring spree, recruiting for financial jobs in Boston and other cities.
The company added 14 private bankers to its US offices. This brings to nearly 30 the number of new hires announced in the last two weeks.
According to Financial News, the hires are part of its Project Gamma plan to spend £350m doubling the number of client-facing staff within five years. Since the start of March, the UK wealth manager has added at least 28 senior private bankers and investment advisers to offices including London, Jersey, Aberdeen and the US.

Prior to Merrill Lynch, Beeders worked as a lawyer at several firms including Mintz Levin in Boston and Skadden Arps in New York. Beeders reports to Marty Courage, Boston regional manager.
