CHICAGO — Minneapolis-based Dougherty & Co. announced this week the hiring of veteran local public finance banker Jim Wenker to bolster its fixed-income banking business and mortgage divisions.

Wenker joined the firm last month in its Minneapolis offices as a senior vice president in investment banking. He will be responsible for research and business development within the fixed-income and mortgage divisions. Wenker retired from his position as Midwest originations manager at Wells Fargo Securities at the end of 2009 after a 22-year career at Wells Fargo Brokerage Services and Norwest Bank, which Wells acquired in 1998.
