David Galardini joined RBC in Southpointe, Pennsylvania, as part of an effort to expand its reach in the Pittsburgh region, according to Kenneth M. Ross, the senior managing director of the Pittsburgh complex. Registered Client Adviser Cathy Buck joined Galardini in the move from her previous position with Wells Fargo Advisors, according to FINRA.

“RBC Wealth Management has been focused on building the firm’s presence in the Pittsburgh area — an important market for the firm — through the recruitment of high quality financial advisers,” Ross says.

Galardini has previous experience at Morgan Stanley and Citigroup, where he started his career in 2005, BrokerCheck records show.

RBC recently recruited a Wells Fargo team that produced $4 million in annual revenue.
