Sendero Wealth Management, a private, independent, partner-led wealth management firm in San Antonio and Austin has announced Kristina G. Craig as Chief Financial and Operating Officer. She spent more than a decade in a variety of accounting and compliance roles with Covenant, then CAPTRUST.

“As Sendero grows so does our need for outstanding talent,” Partner and CEO Elizabeth Flavin Crawford said. “Kristina’s vast knowledge and skillset allows us to think broader, take on more complex client projects and creatively grow and expand our teams.

“Kristina’s knowledge and expertise will benefit us in several ways,” she said. “She’s a strategic thinker who is not just managing for today but for tomorrow’s changing landscapes. Kristina is part of the team working with clients as they contemplate acquisition and disposition of business or personal assets, risk management and succession planning.”

Craig graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance. Her early career was spent as an auditor and then staff accountant. Craig joined Covenant in 2010 as controller and manager of tax services, building out the firm’s tax practice. A few years later she became CFO, then director of finance and compliance, spending more than a decade there.
