Leawood, Kansas-based Mariner Wealth Advisors, an independent investment advisory firm, has named Robert J. (Bob) Swift its new senior vice president of trust and estate planning.

Swift, an industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience, joins the firm from Colorado State Bank and Trust where he most recently served as senior vice president and trust manager. In that role, Swift was instrumental in enhancing the bank’s position as Colorado’s premium provider of fiduciary services as well as growing assets under administration to over $10 billion.

In his new post at Mariner, Swift will lead the firm’s efforts to expand its trust and estate planning capabilities.

Said Mariner CEO Martin C. Bicknell in a statement: “When we decided to expand our trust services solution, we knew its success would depend on the experience and skill of the leaders overseeing it. I am confident that Bob is absolutely the best professional to lead this new venture. His trust experience is second to none. Even more importantly, over his many years in the business, he has shown an unwavering commitment to his clients, consistently serving as their biggest advocate. I am very pleased to welcome Bob to the firm, and I look forward to his leadership as we expand our trust and estate planning capabilities.”
