Wells Fargo Securities hired municipal bond veteran Paula Dagen to become a public finance banker in New York.
Dagen will join the firm in December in the Northeast public finance group headed by Ronald Stack, the firm announced on Thursday.
“Paula is a strong team player who is well respected in the industry,” said Phil Smith, head of Government and Institutional Banking at Wells Fargo. “By joining our team, Paula adds additional depth in our coverage of key Northeast relationships.”
Most recently, Dagen was a senior managing director at Ramirez & Co., where she had been since February 2016. At Ramirez, she was lead investment banker for several issuers in the New York City region, including NYC, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the Long Island Power Authority.
Previously, she had been a managing director at Morgan Stanley for 19 years. At Morgan Stanley, she developed the firm’s New York business and worked with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
