ST. LOUIS, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stifel Financial Corp.

"I'm honored to welcome David Paterson to our team," said Ed Moldaver, Managing Director/Investments and founding partner of the Moldaver, Paterson, Lee and Chrebet Group.

Prior to becoming New York State's 55th governor in March 2008, David Paterson began his political career when he was elected to represent Harlem in 1985 at the age of 31, making him the third youngest state senator in New York's history. In 2002, he was elected as Minority Leader of the New York State Senate, becoming the first African-American and blind legislative leader in the state's history. Among his many other accomplishments and distinctions, he was honored to address the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
