SAVANNAH, Ga. — William Daly has been tapped to become director of governmental affairs for the National Association of Bond Lawyers later this month.

Daly, currently senior vice president of government relations for Bond Dealers of America, is expected to join NABL on Monday, March 26.

“We’re pleased to have him join us as director of governmental affairs,” NABL president Kristin Franceschi said here Thursday at the group’s Tax and Securities Law Institute meeting. “These are interesting times and we’re fortunate to have someone with so much experience join us. He will be really good.” 

Daly will replace Victoria Rostow, who left NABL last week to take a position with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. Daly has been at BDA since March 2010.

Before that he was federal affairs director for New York City. He served every New York mayor since Ed Koch and has ties to the municipal market going back more than two decades, when he began federal advocacy work for the city in 1986.

He worked for the city before BDA, except for a seven-year period, from 1995 to 2002, during the Clinton and Bush administrations, when he was a top-level advisor at the Social Security Administration.

“I am confident Bill will be an asset to NABL the way he’s been to the BDA over the past couple of years as he’s been a part of the BDA’s growth to 50 member firms and the most focused advocate in Washington, D.C., for middle market and regional fixed-income dealers,” said BDA chief executive officer Mike Nicholas.  “I wish him well and look forward to working with Bill in his new role.”
