D.A. Davidson & Co. Names Marc Dispense as President of Fixed Income Capital Markets

April 4, 2019

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 4, 2019--D.A. Davidson & Co. today announced that Marc Dispense, an experienced capital markets leader, has joined the firm as its President of Fixed Income Capital Markets. He will oversee a team that has consistently ranked among the nation’s top bond underwriters in a number of specialty areas and that offers a wide range of other fixed income services and solutions.

“As a seasoned leader in fixed income capital markets, Marc is known for his powerful combination of deep industry knowledge, high-level strategic thinking and leadership skills,” said Jim Kerr, Chairman and CEO of D.A. Davidson Companies. “We look forward to working with Marc as we continue to grow our fixed income team and deliver D.A. Davidson’s personalized service to more clients across the U.S.”

Dispense joins D.A. Davidson with considerable experience in fixed income capital markets, most recently with George K. Baum & Co. in Denver, where he served as co-head of capital markets. During his 16 years in the fixed income securities industry, he has led highly experienced underwriting, trading and sales teams and has provided market access for municipal bond issuers from a wide range of industries and regions.

“I’m thrilled to join a top-notch national firm who focuses on providing banking needs to the local communities where we live,” said Dispense. “D.A. Davidson’s wealth management, equity capital markets and trust management businesses make the fixed income group stronger for both our people and our clients. These attributes, paired with being an employee owned firm, give the team a strong platform with a common drive that I look forward to continuing to build upon.”

Dispense was hired to lead D.A. Davidson’s Fixed Income Capital Markets group with the retirement of longtime President Sam Doyle, who will remain with the firm during the leadership transition before stepping down later this year. Dispense will work from the firm’s Denver office and report directly to the CEO.

D.A. Davidson’s Fixed Income Capital Markets group is a national leader in raising capital through fixed income banking, distribution and depository strategy. The group recently announced an agreement to acquire Wells Nelson & Associates, an Oklahoma-based public finance and wealth management firm. Currently with 28 locations in 18 states, the group serves clients including banks, credit unions, insurance companies, bond managers, money managers and trust companies.
