A wife-and-husband advisor team has left Wells Fargo Advisors to join regional firm Janney Montgomery Scott.

Advisors Sandra and Joseph A. Bell joined Janney's office Marietta, Ohio, where they will report to branch manager William Howell.

Sandra Bell is an industry veteran, having started her career with Bache Halsey Stuart Shields in 1981, according to FINRA records. That firm was shortly thereafter acquired by Prudential Securities.
