ATLANTA, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SunTrust Robinson Humphrey (STRH) today announced the addition of three industry veterans to its equity research team in biotechnology and oilfield services.
"Our ongoing expansion in equity research demonstrates our commitment to providing our valued institutional clients with unique insights to enhance their investment decision making," said Biff Woodruff, Head of Equities at STRH.

Edward Nash also joins STRH as a managing director covering the biotechnology and life sciences sector. He brings 17 years of experience on both the buy-side and sell-side, joining STRH from Cowen and Company. Nash's insightful research is predicated on proprietary surveys of industry experts; a deep understanding of the innovation in pipeline; and proactively assessing what is next to transpire. Nash earned his MBA in finance and MS in international business from the University of Miami, as well as a master's of public health in epidemiology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He completed his bachelor's degree in biology at Spring Hill College.
Chase Mulvehill joins STRH as a director on the energy team covering the oilfield service industry. He previously served as a buy-side analyst at Carlson Capital and Millennium.
