How long have you worked in this industry?
I joined Baird in 2014, but I’ve been working in public finance for more than 30 years. While I serve clients all over the country, I mostly focus on serving school districts in the upper Midwest, particularly Minnesota and South Dakota.
How did you first hear about Baird?
I first encountered Baird more than two decades ago working for a rival firm. I competed against Baird in the late 1990s to early 2000s while working in western Wisconsin.
What originally drew you to Baird?
I remember being really impressed with Baird’s public finance “infrastructure.” It wasn’t just a banker on a phone – it was marketing, compliance, legal, banking support, the whole Baird Public Finance package.
Looking back, how does your Baird career experience compare with your previous career experience?
While I’ve enjoyed every stop in my career, I would say the people at Baird really stand out. I personally enjoy the team and the success I’ve been a part of in Public Finance, both locally as well as part of the larger business at Baird. The fact that I and so many of my colleagues are shareholders of the firm – that’s really meaningful to me.
