Smale had run the municipal bond group at LaSalle Financial Services Inc. in Chicago until the bank was purchased by Bank of America Corp. in 2007. He joined Cabrera last March in a new position as a senior managing director with oversight of managing directors in the firm's three business lines: public finance, corporate finance, and equities.
