Firm: Hilltop Securities Inc.
Joel Tindal is a director in the public finance department at Hilltop Securities, providing financial advisory and investment banking services to municipal issuers primarily in Florida. His work includes public and private, tax-exempt and taxable financing transactions for cities, counties, airports, toll roads, utilities, higher education, and special districts. He has developed and worked on complex financial plans and models for clients, including large transportation issuers.
Joel quickly realized the role public finance played in communities across the country. Public finance provides him with the opportunity to impact the communities he serves, offering a creative challenge to help clients accomplish more with less. A valuable professional experience was working during the financial crisis early in his career, which he said presented a challenging market environment that required new and alternative solutions for clients.
He supports a number of organizations with his wife in their community, including Make-a-Wish Central and Northern Florida and the Orlando Union Rescue Mission. They have also volunteered for a local food bank. Joel and his wife are the parents of two children, a three-year old son and a one-year old daughter, who keep them very active now that both are walking. When he has time, Joel enjoys family bike rides, traveling, golfing, and trying new restaurants.
“Joel is a leader in his firm and serves as a mentor to a number of younger bankers and analysts in his firm. He displays a great deal of innovation and creativity in finding financial solutions for his clients. Using a low key approach, Joel has been successful in communicating complex ideas in understandable language to all of his clients, ranging from large sophisticated entities to small issuers.” Ed Stull, Managing Director, Hilltop Securities Inc.
