Sanctuary Wealth announced the appointment of Kevin J. Miller as Chief Legal Officer and the reappointment of Kevin P. Chase as Chief Compliance Officer.

Chase returns to the position of Chief Compliance Officer after serving as the firm’s Regulatory and Risk Director.

Adam Malamed, Sanctuary’s CEO, said, “The continued enhancement of our leadership team reflects Sanctuary’s commitment to continuously invest in top senior talent to deliver an elevated service experience and provide business growth solutions for our Partner firms and their clients, while accelerating our growth strategy.”

Malamed continued, “Kevin Miller and Kevin Chase are seasoned wealth management industry veterans who have a proven ability to align legal, regulatory and compliance functions with the needs of sophisticated and demanding wealth managers as well as their clients. We look forward to leveraging their exceptional experience, industry knowledge and skills to reinforce Sanctuary’s success.”

The appointments of Miller and Chase are the latest in Sanctuary’s buildout of its senior leadership team. In March, the firm hired David Vaughan, who accumulated over 25 years’ experience at Securities America and Axos, as its CFO.

Miller will report to Malamed, and brings over three decades of experience in wealth management, including almost 21 years at Securities America. At Carson, Miller counseled the firm on corporate strategy, aligning legal, compliance, supervisory and regulatory functions to support both organic and inorganic growth.

“There is an outsized opportunity for Sanctuary’s growth to further surge, given the rising demand among the most sophisticated and successful wealth managers for a platform that delivers on their strategic needs,” said Miller. “Legal, regulatory and compliance functions can, and should, play a crucial role in both protecting the businesses of wealth managers and reinforcing their success.”

With almost three decades of experience in compliance supervision at wirehouse and independent firms, including almost 26 years at Merrill Lynch, where he rose to serve as a Divisional Manager, Chase will return to the role of Chief Compliance Officer and actively engage in building compliance offerings to serve Sanctuary’s partner firms.

“I believe an important part of the firm’s success is our ingrained compliance culture that puts the needs of clients above all else,” said Chase. “I’m proud of the role I’ve played in building that culture and am honored by the confidence Adam and his team have shown by inviting me to lead the firm’s compliance program once again.”

The Sanctuary Wealth network has approximately $25 billion in assets under advisement with partner firms in 28 states.
