Company’s Expansion and Focus on Financial Institutions Continues

D.A. Davidson & Co. announced today the opening of a new wealth management office with the addition of two members of the company’s growing Community Bank & Wealth Management Group.

The office opening marks a strategically important addition to the geographic reach and array of services that D.A. Davidson offers to individual investors and financial institutions across the country. Bicking and Dooley, previously with Boenning and Scattergood, each have extensive experience working with community banks in the Eastern United States.

“Nick and Tom further deepen our expertise with community banks, an industry in which D.A. Davidson ranks nationally as one of the top five providers of M&A advisory services and top ten providers of capital,” said Monte Giese, President of D.A. Davidson’s Equity Capital Markets group. “Their expertise will further our efforts to provide liquidity and capital for our bank clients nationwide.”

Bicking has extensive experience, with more than 20 years of working in the community banking sector. He received his bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. Dooley previously worked as a financial advisor and in equity trading, where he specialized in the community bank sector. He is a graduate of Ohio State University in Columbus.

“Joining D.A. Davidson provides us with an outstanding platform and a client-centric culture from which to deepen our relationships with clients while extending our offerings to more banks,” Bicking said.

The office opening further strengthens the company’s presence in Dublin, where it already operates a Fixed Income Capital Markets group. The firm also expanded with a new Wealth Management office in Colorado Springs, Colo. in April.

The Community Banking & Wealth Management Group offers a distinctive range of solutions for community banks, ranging from customized securities trading plans to bank executive asset management, in addition to a full suite of wealth management services.

The group is part of D.A. Davidson Wealth Management, which offers an array of financial products and services to individuals, families, businesses and institutions.
