Previously, he also held the CCO role with Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management.

As CCO at TMG, Evans will manage and coordinate all activities related to compliance with the firm’s regulatory requirements as a federally registered investment adviser. “We’ve always believed in the importance of fostering a strong culture of compliance at TMG, and Stu is going to be instrumental in helping us maintain and improve upon that,” said TMG CEO Chris Behrens. “Stu brings a level of experience that is exactly what our firm needs as we navigate the dynamic regulatory environment while also growing rapidly.
