Drexel Hamilton hired Roger Anderson as senior vice president, part of an effort by the service-disabled veteran-owned broker-dealer to expand municipal finance coverage.
“I'm thrilled to be part of an organization that helps those who have devoted themselves to protecting our country to write the next chapters in their lives,” Anderson said in a press release Thursday.
"Roger brings a wealth of experience in municipal finance through his former positions in both government and as executive director of the New Jersey Educational Facilities Authority,” said Tom Mead, Drexel’s managing director of municipals. “He will be a tremendous addition to our banking efforts as we continue to grow the municipal finance department.”
Anderson has worked in the private, nonprofit and government sectors.
He was deputy assistant secretary of federal finance at the United States Treasury Department, where he designed and implemented Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities. Most recently, Anderson served as chief operating officer at Centenary University in New Jersey and has worked at Elmrock Capital. He is a former Deputy Comptroller for Finance for the New York City Comptroller’s Office.
He has also worked as a lawyer at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton and was a clerk for the Hon. Daniel Friedman, Chief Judge of the United States Court of Claims.
Anderson holds a J.D. degree from the University of Chicago Law School and received an A.B. degree from Cornell University College of Arts and Sciences.
