Stone & Youngberg Announces New Board Appointment
Parker Colvin Joins Firm’s Board of Directors
San Francisco, Calif. (March 15, 2011) – Stone & Youngberg, a leading financial services firm and the nation’s top underwriter of California and Arizona municipal bonds over the past five years1, has appointed Parker Colvin to the firm’s Board of Directors.
Colvin, now head of municipal underwriting for Stone & Youngberg, joined the firm in 1999 as a summer intern tasked with building Stone & Youngberg’s web site. He was hired full time in the firm’s Information Technology Group in 2000, before moving to the municipal trading desk in 2001. Recognized by Stone & Youngberg’s Private Client Group for his outstanding contributions to that team, he moved into an underwriting role in 2007 and became head underwriter in 2008, splitting head underwriting responsibilities regionally when the firm expanded underwriting to New York in 2009. Colvin is a graduate of Wheaton College and resides in San Francisco, where the firm is headquartered.
“From unconventional beginnings, Parker has proven to be an invaluable contributor to the firm,” said Ken Williams, President and CEO of Stone & Youngberg. “We are very pleased to have him join Stone & Youngberg’s Board of Directors, and we know he will be an invaluable member of the board.”
