Trexler will lead Vested’s South Florida practice

New York, NY – Financial marketing and communications firm Vested has hired Abby Trexler as a Managing Director based in New York and Miami. In this role, Trexler will oversee several of Vested’s US-based accounts and lead the firm’s growing practice in South Florida, focusing on Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach.

Miami, a growing hub for financial services, ranked 7th nationally and 24th globally in the latest edition of the Global Financial Centres Index, is a natural fit as Vested expands its footprint.

“As the industry extends into new markets, Vested’s priority remains bringing top financial marketing and communications expertise to our clients,” said US CEO Amber Roberts. “Abby’s appointment marks an exciting milestone for Vested as we expand our national presence and further solidify our position as a leader in financial communications. Abby’s leadership in spearheading our South Florida practice underscores our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our clients in dynamic markets.”

Previous and current clients include Apex, Invesco, S&P Global, Principal Financial Group, Wilmington Trust, BNY Mellon, Pershing, Fiserv, The Hartford, and more. At the core of her strategic methodology lies a focus on articulating intricate subject matter with clarity, crafting engaging narratives, and adeptly counseling executives as they navigate nuanced communication challenges.

She joins Vested from Edelman Smithfield, where she served as an Executive Vice President, and Head of the New York Financial Services team. Previously, Trexler spent seven years with Peppercom and Hot Paper Lantern, leading their financial and professional services businesses.

“I am thrilled to join this talented group of people who have built Vested into a leader in financial communications,” Trexler said. “The depth of client relationships, the focus on honing the financial acumen of our team, and Vested’s processes for account management are some of the best I’ve seen in the industry. I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth and success of the agency in the years ahead.”
