Kristen Kimmell

Head of advisor recruiting and field marketing, RBC Wealth Management (RBCWM)


Kristen Kimmell took on her current role at RBC’s Minneapolis office in fall 2019. Under her leadership, RBCWM recorded a 32 percent increase in advisor recruiting in its fiscal year 2020 over the previous year. This is critical to the firm’s overall growth—recruiting new advisors results in a near-automatic lift in revenue. What’s more, the average production per recruit was 50 percent higher than the previous year.

Kimmell also inspired the development of a digital series that spotlights female financial advisors and advisors of color. The series helped drive a 25 percent increase in diverse advisor hires in 2020.
