CHICAGO - The four-member public finance banking team from Ohio-based Butler Wick & Co. - cut last month after Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. acquired the firm - landed earlier this month at Cincinnati-based Ross, Sinclaire & Associates LLC.

The group includes in Columbus Omar Ganoom, a nine-year veteran at Butler Wick and manager of the group; Donald Bank, who launched Butler Wick's capital markets group in 1991; and Eric Prall, who joined Butler Wick six years ago. The fourth banker, Joseph O'Keefe, joined Butler last June to establish a presence in Illinois. He previously was a senior credit analyst at Fitch Ratings.
