WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Steward Partners Holdings, LLC (Steward), the holding company for Steward Partners Global Advisory, announced today that Rob Jackowitz has joined as the eleventh member of the firm's Board of Directors.

Mr. Jackowitz is an established industry veteran with more than thirty years of financial and investment management experience, including twenty-three years as a chief financial officer in the alternative assets industry.

"Rob understands exactly where our industry is heading and how Steward aims to expand within that space," said Jim Gold, Chief Executive Officer at Steward Partners. "He is the perfect example of the type of industry leader we want on our Board. We know his experience will be invaluable for the company and we couldn't be more grateful to have him join the team."

"As we continue to grow, it's exciting to welcome new leaders like Rob who understand what the future of wealth management looks like, and who believe in our vision for Steward Partners," added Hy Saporta, Steward Partners President. "Rob's track record in the industry speaks for itself, and we are privileged to add his unique perspective and counsel to our Board."

"Steward continues to attract the best in the business and we couldn't be more excited to welcome Rob," said Michael McMahon, Steward Partners' Board Chairman. "This past year has been a busy one and we're grateful to have leaders like Rob helping guide Steward Partners' growth to the next level."

"I'm thrilled to be joining a team that stands apart from the pack in an increasingly crowded industry," added Jackowitz. "Steward Partners has had incredibly strong results since its founding, and in particular over the last year, and I look forward to working with the rest of the Board and senior leadership at the firm to continue driving its growth. The team's client-focused service and commitment to their advisors made this an easy decision."
