Katrina Blecher has joined Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. as a financial services analyst, the company said. She began her new job Monday.

Most recently, Ms. Blecher was a banking analyst at Gruntal & Co., covering regional banks in the Northeast, South, and Midwest.

At Brown Brothers, she will be working with veteran analyst Raphael Soifer, who covers money-center institutions. Mr. Soifer said coverage should reach 25 to 30 U.S. and foreign banks.

"Kate is known for her independence, and it is one of the things we look for here," Mr. Soifer said.

Ms. Blecher fills a post vacated by Nancy A. Bush, who moved to Ryan, Beck & Co., Livingston, N.J., in April and continues to cover the nation's large regional banks.
