NEW YORK, June 9 (Reuters) - Morgan Stanley appointed several executives from E*Trade to senior roles on Wednesday in a leadership shuffle that brings leaders from the online broker into the top ranks of the firm’s wealth management division, according to a memo seen by Reuters.

Andrea Zaretsky, previously chief marketing officer at E*Trade, will be the chief marketing officer for all of wealth management. Zaretsky, Turner and Curcio will all report to Saperstein, who also the co-president of the bank.

Mike Murphy, head of brokerage services at E*Trade, will lead digital direct client services, Chris Larkin, E*trade’s head of trading, will oversee trading across the division.
