Aybar Joins New Business Development Team at Cetera Advisors

Denver, CO – Cetera Advisors, formerly known as Multi-Financial, announced today the addition of Arthur Aybar to its new business development team. Aybar’s hiring follows the November 2012 appointment of David Bombart as Cetera Advisors’ director of new business development and further expands the company’s recruiting efforts.

Aybar, based in Boynton Beach, Fla., will serve the East Region, focusing his efforts on branch office development and attracting new advisors.

“Arthur has a deep understanding of our industry and has developed many great relationships,” said Jay Vinson, vice president, new business development, at Cetera Advisors. “He has served as an exceptional advocate and guide for advisors, helping them determine their best broker-dealer options. His ability to connect with advisors and his years of experience are a great asset to us and to advisors in our East Region.”

Aybar, whose financial services experience spans 17 years and a variety of roles, holds his FINRA Series 7, 9, 10, 55 and 63 securities registrations. He began his career as a financial advisor and equities trader before moving into business development roles with Cambridge Investment Research and Sterne Agee Financial. Most recently, he ran his own recruiting firm, BD Navigation LLC.

“I’m looking forward to working with a dynamic firm like Cetera Advisors, and with the energetic, hard-working team there,” said Aybar. “I feel very aligned with the Cetera Advisors culture, one that fully supports advisors in practice management and building a continuous legacy in wealth management.”
