ATLANTA, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Drexel Hamilton, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Broker-Dealer, announced today it has opened an office in Atlanta, Ga. with the goal of expanding its offerings in the city and region. Specifically, the firm sees significant opportunity to provide municipal and corporate bond support to organizations across the region. Drexel Hamilton also hopes to expand its reach to military veterans interested in a career in finance.
"Opening this new location in Atlanta was a natural move as we look to increase our footprint in the Southeast," said Preston Carlson, Associate, Institutional Sales based in Atlanta. "With Atlanta's established reputation as the financial capital of the region, opening an office here allows us to better support local markets in a city with growing demand for municipal and corporate financing solutions."

The Atlanta office provides an opportunity for the firm to support business growth as well as spread its mission to offer meaningful employment opportunities to veterans and disabled veterans desiring a career in financial services.
