Kara Lewis (CBB 2011) is stepping up to serve as Director of AB Bernstein’s Cleveland-area private wealth practice. She steps into the role vacated by Shane McRann Bigelow (LC 2016), who was named CEO of Ownum, Bernie Moreno Co.’s blockchain company.
According to a quote in Crain’s Cleveland Business from David Barnard, Managing Director at Bernstein Private Wealth Management, “Kara is a seasoned executive with two decades of distinct experience servicing institutional and high net worth clients — and exactly the right person to lead our business in Ohio and build on our recent success. She is taking over after nearly five years of exceptional growth, and we are confident she will take us to even greater heights … We also congratulate Shane for the new role at Ownum and thank him for his 13 years at the firm and long list of accomplishments serving our clients. We wish him continued success.”
