Message From The President

It’s hard for me to believe that Frank Hutchinson’s vision in 1957 could have encompassed all that Hutchinson, Shockey, Erley & Co. has come to be today. From a local firm of two people to a national corporation of more than fifty employees, HSE has grown to play an outsized role in the municipal bond industry. We have achieved this growth without straying from our original mission: HSE provides superior client service while specializing exclusively in municipal securities, today as in 1957.

As President and CEO of HSE, I’m humbled by what my predecessors accomplished in this industry; proud of the service our employees provide to investors and municipalities; and thankful for the trust and confidence that our clients continue to place in us every day. With investment banking offices in nine states, a nationally ranked competitive underwriting platform, and a trading and sales team with unparalleled experience, HSE is uniquely positioned to help both municipal issuers and institutional investors achieve their goals.

Our business is our clients, and I’m personally committed to ensuring that you receive the level of professionalism and service that has become synonymous with the HSE name. We’re a large firm in terms of our market presence but we’re small enough to know all of our clients individually. I’m happy to talk to you about your needs and our services, and if you have ideas about how we can improve what we do for you, please do let me know. If you’re not a client I would encourage you to learn more about HSE; if you are, I thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

Tom Dannenberg
President & CEO
