CHICAGO — Seeking to broaden its Midwest presence, Montana-based D.A. Davidson & Co. this week announced hiring two institutional sales professionals, previously with RBC Capital Markets’ institutional sales group, to staff a new office in Mason, Ohio.
Davidson hired Bruce Chaiken and Don Ginnetti as senior vice presidents in institutional sales. The two are charged with managing and expanding Davidson’s fixed-income sales to institutional investors throughout the Midwest and nationally. In addition to RBC, Chaiken and Ginnetti also worked at the once top-ranked Ohio underwriting firm of Seasongood & Mayer LLC, which was acquired by RBC in 2007.
