R. Seelaus & Co. said Quentin Murray would join the firm as head of sales and trading after spending the past four years at Stifel Nicholas.
The New Jersey based broker dealer and Women’s Business Enterprise made the announcement on Monday afternoon.
“We are thrilled to be adding someone of Quentin’s caliber to our already impressive roster of fixed income professionals” said Annie Seelaus Mitnick, chief executive officer of R. Seelaus. “His expertise across fixed income products will elevate our business and be instrumental in our efforts to be a true value-add partner and liquidity provider to our client base.”
Murray's career in the credit markets spans more than 35 years. He is a preeminent player in the hybrid and preferred markets, and it expected to significantly increase the firm’s presence in this space for both the institutional and retail businesses, according to the firm.
At Stifel, Murray was managing director and co-head of the preferred and hybrid securities business. Prior to that, he worked at Broadpoint Capital (Gleacher & Co), Bank of America, HSBC, and Cantor Fitzgerald. He started his career in 1982 at JJ Kenny.
“I’m looking forward to utilizing my skill set and experience to build on the already robust platform of fixed income businesses at Seelaus,” Murray said. “In particular I’m excited about the recent push into debt capital markets and the opportunity to add value in the primary.”
