A Philadelphia finance official has joined the public finance group of PNC Capital Markets.

PNC announced Wednesday that James Lanham, Philadelphia's deputy city treasurer since 2011, has joined the firm as director within the public finance capital markets team. He will work in PNC's Philadelphia office on debt-based financial structures serving priority governmental clients in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

In his role as Philadelphia's deputy treasurer, Lanham assisted in the management of the debt portfolio and issuance for the nation's fifth largest city. He previously received experience in analytical and consultative work with Philadelphia-based Public Financial Management.

"Jimmy brings the unique insight from the issuer's side, overseeing that process for one of the largest cities in America and helping to manage the city's extensive banking and investment banking relationships for years," said Robert Dailey, managing director, executive vice president and head of the public finance business at PNC. "His experience will enable PNC to better understand and deliver broad-based financing solutions for our clients."
