Williams will be responsible for working directly with clients to manage and direct their complex planning, investment and banking needs as well as family governance and education in the Northwest region of Abbot Downing.

“We are delighted to build our team with such depth and breadth of experience in one of America’s greatest cities,” said Mary Mewha, regional managing director of the Northwest. “Eric’s extensive background will provide clients with planning and asset management solutions that will preserve and grow their assets while building a lasting legacy that positively impacts their families and their communities.”

Prior to joining Abbot Downing, Williams was the national director of the wealth structuring group at Merrill Lynch. He was business development director with Citigroup Global Markets for the high-net-worth segment before joining Merrill Lynch.

Williams is a graduate of the Washington State University and Cannon Trust School.

Williams is one of more than 35 professionals serving clients in the San Francisco office of Abbot Downing. The San Francisco office of Abbot Downing recently relocated to the Wells Fargo headquarters building located at 420 Montgomery Street.

In the San Francisco community, Abbot Downing has actively supported the San Francisco Ballet, Meals on Wheels, SF Food Bank, Marin County Boys & Girls Club, Adopt-A-Family, Bay Area Discovery Museum, Glide Memorial, and the Napa Community Foundation.
