He also has previously worked as a fixed-income trader and a fixed-income analyst during his 15-year career in financial services.Under the structure of Wells Fargo’s brokerage group, salespersons, traders, and analysts often work on both corporate and tax-exempt deals. The firm has been on a hiring spree in public finance since 2006 when its managers said they were seeking to double revenues by 2010.
