Ajay Thomas, managing director, John Hall, director, Kirk London, vice president, David Tiffin, vice president, and Peter Lamar, assistant vice president, will build on Baird’s successful existing public finance effort working with Texas issuers.
Thomas and Lamar will work from Baird’s new Austin public finance office. Hall will work from Baird’s new San Antonio public finance office. London and Tiffin will work from a new Dallas public finance office, which also includes associates from Baird’s wealth management, equity research, fixed income sales and equity trading businesses.
“We are thrilled to add talented professionals like Ajay, John, Kirk, David and Peter to the Baird family,” said Paul Purcell, Baird chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We see tremendous opportunity in Texas. The region is culturally compatible with Baird – conservative, client-centric and community-oriented – and the state’s robust economic activity, population and job growth makes it a great place to do business.”
