Mischler Financial Group Announces Dean Chamberlain Elevated to CEO; Securities Industry's Oldest Minority SDVBE Taps Top Wall Street Veteran
Mischler Financial Group (“MFG”), the securities industry's oldest minority firm certified as a Service-Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (SDVBE), announced today that Dean Chamberlain, who joined the firm as a principal in early 2011, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, a role previously held by firm founder and Chairman Walter Mischler. A West Point graduate who served 6 years as an Officer in the U.S. Army before commencing his now 21-year career on Wall Street, Mr. Chamberlain was most recently the Head of Fixed Income/Americas for Nomura Securities International. He previously held executive roles at Bank of America and JPMorgan.
Commenting on the executive transition, founder Walt Mischler stated, “When considering his background, Dean is indisputably the most qualified and most capable person to guide our firm for the next generation. After sustaining injuries while serving as an Officer in our armed forces, he repurposed himself and became a leader within the financial service industry. Dean's ability to guide an aspiring Tier 1 institutional brokerage is evidenced by his long-standing track record, including the heightened recognition we've gained from Fortune 500 issuers, leading institutional investors and top Wall Street firms since Dean and his team first joined MFG.”
Newly-appointed CEO Dean Chamberlain stated, “This is a unique opportunity, both personally and professionally; it allows me to contribute 2 decades of Wall Street leadership experience to expand a platform that truly meets the diversity goals of issuers and investment managers who require the capabilities typical to traditional ‘bulge bracket' firms. The special dividend is my being able to help extend the firm's formidable legacy and support of vital causes that empower disabled armed service veterans and their families.”
