Americana Partners, a Houston-based registered investment advisory firm, says it has hired an industry veteran who had spent three decades at Morgan Stanley.
Americana Partners, a $3.5 billion Houston-based independent registered investment advisor affiliated with Dynasty Financial Partners in St. Petersburg, Fla., has appointed Ronald E. Thacker as president, the company announced today in a news release.
For three decades, Thacker worked in numerous leadership roles at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, where he directed more than 2,000 financial advisors across 13 states before leaving in 2020.
Financial advisor Jason Fertitta hadn’t spoken with his former supervisor at Morgan Stanley since he resigned to open a multi-billion-dollar RIA in 2019.
But that changed about six months ago, when Fertitta drove to pick up Ron Thacker, take him out to breakfast and discuss why they should work together again.

When Jason Fertitta led a team of wealth advisers out of Morgan Stanley last year to start Houston-based Americana Partners, the bull market was roaring and the price of oil — integral to the fortunes of his rich Texas clients — hovered at $66 a barrel. Now, equities are struggling, oil’s at about half that price and the world is fighting a pandemic.
