Amelia Bond joins George K. Baum


Amelia A.J. Bond is joining Kansas City-based George K. Baum, a privately-held investment banking firm.


Bond will open the firm’s St. Louis office.

“We’re thrilled to have such an accomplished professional with a great national reputation join our team. Amelia understands issuers and their financing needs,” says Jonathan E. Baum, chairman and chief executive officer of George K. Baum. “Her experience and understanding, combined with her proven managerial abilities and her past leadership within the industry as chair of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, will be a great asset. Most importantly, her wealth of knowledge will enable us to provide consistent, high-quality service throughout the State of Missouri, as well as broaden our presence nationally.”

Formerly, Bond worked as the managing director and head of public finance for Wachovia Securities for two years after its merger with A.G. Edwards in 2007. Prior to the merger, Bond served as senior vice president and director of public finance for the St. Louis-based brokerage for seven years. Before heading the department and its 15 offices, she led the St. Louis municipal group and developed it into the number one ranked Missouri banking team for A.G. Edwards.

“I am eager to help municipal issuers in Missouri and the Midwest develop and implement financial strategies that will enable them to build the schools they need to educate children, repair roads to facilitate commerce, and deliver the municipal services that their constituents depend on,” says Bond. “As a banker, manager, and an industry leader, I have dedicated myself to one important element above all else – serving clients. I was looking for a firm that shares this commitment and found it in George K. Baum & Company, and I look forward to helping them expand their successful practice here in Missouri and beyond.”

From 2003 to 2006, Bond served on the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board and was elected by the board to serve as its chairman during the 2005-2006 fiscal year.

Bond will establish an office in St. Louis and join a group of senior bankers in serving Missouri-based issuers from both Kansas City and now St. Louis. She will be working directly with Dick Bartow and Greg Bricker, both executive vice presidents in the firm’s Kansas City office.
