MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (December 19th, 2018) – RBC Wealth Management, one of the nation’s largest full-service wealth management firms, recently recruited a new team in Stillwater, MN, according to Bill Kohn, director of the Stillwater branch.

The Franklin and Lewis Investment Group is comprised of Susan Franklin, first vice president – financial advisor, who joins with 28 years of industry experience and Russell Lewis, first vice president – financial advisor, who joins with 23 years of experience. Franklin will reside in the Minneapolis office, while Lewis will work in the Stillwater office. The team manages more than $900 million in client assets and joins RBC from Wells Fargo.
