Developing the Next Generation of Leaders

Baird is focused on attracting and retaining talented women from across our industry. Not only to benefit our clients, but also to identify and cultivate leadership potential in those who can help ensure the strength of our culture and consistency of our commitment to excellence. Women like Maria Watts, recently named Co-Head of Our Global Investment Banking Team’s Consumer Group, and Angela Pittman Taylor, who became Director of Corporate Communications in January. We appreciate them and others like them whose vision and passion drive great outcomes for Baird and those who depend on us.
