Former Piper Jaffray Banker Brings a Decade of Experience in California's K-14 Market
SAN FRANCISCO, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dale Scott & Company announced today that Mark Farrell has joined the firm as a Senior Financial Advisor. In this role, Mr. Farrell will focus on assisting California's school districts and community college districts in developing and implementing their capital funding needs.
Most recently, Mark Farrell worked with Piper Jaffrays' Public Finance Department and was part of their California Education Group. While at Piper, Mr. Farrell oversaw the California School Board Association's Cash Reserve Program, the largest pooled tax and revenue anticipation note ("TRAN") financing program in the nation. He will continue to manage this program in his new financial advisory role at Dale Scott & Company. Piper Jaffray will continue to serve as underwriter for the TRAN pool.
"We've all been great admirers of Mark's financial skills, integrity, and honesty for many years," said Dale Scott, President of Dale Scott & Company. "His deep understanding of today's funding challenges will be an incredible resource to our clients."
Over the past decade, Mr. Farrell has worked on over 400 school district and community college financings totaling over $12 billion. This experience will be of enormous value to Dale Scott & Company's broad client base of California K-14 districts.
"We've worked with Dale Scott & Company for many years," said Vince Christakos, Chief Business Official for the Hemet Unified School District in Riverside County, "and we've also used Mark Farrell as our bond underwriter on numerous transactions. Adding Mark's exceptional skills and talents to Dale Scott & Company's financial advisory platform will be a significant asset for districts across the State."
