Mesirow Financial Names Mondi President
CHICAGO, IL, February 7, 2017 — Mesirow Financial announced today its board of directors has appointed Dominick Mondi as its new president. Mondi will assume the role on April 1. The firm also announced it was expanding Chief Financial Officer Kristie Paskvan’s responsibilities to Chief Operating Officer and oversight of operations at the employee-owned financial services firm.
“Dominick has been a dynamic and effective board member and business leader who has the right mix of strategic vision and effective execution,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Price. “He knows our capabilities and culture, and has been able to realize synergies across businesses that have been very successful for our clients and the firm.”
Since joining the firm in 2008, Mondi has been responsible for expanding Mesirow’s Capital Markets businesses, increasing its annual institutional sales and trading volume to $35 billion. He will continue to co-manage that business and, as president of Mesirow Financial, Mondi will focus on the strategic growth of the firm, capital investment policies and performance objectives.
“I am excited to work with our businesses on the strategic growth of the firm and ways in which we can meet more of our clients’ needs,” said Mondi. “Mesirow is a remarkable company with a rich history of serving as a trusted advisor to global institutions, corporations and wealthy individuals.”
To allow Mondi to focus on strategy, Paskvan will expand her role to COO, bringing keen financial insights to the firm’s business operations. Paskvan has played a key role in leadership for nearly 20 years and will coordinate business goals with effective execution. She also leads the company’s retirement planning and advisory and compensation and executive benefit practices. Paskvan joined Mesirow in 1997 and was promoted to CFO in 1999.
“We’ve made several changes in the past year in the continued execution of the firm’s strategic plan, and we have emerged a stronger, more focused organization poised for growth,” said Price. “Our leadership team will help maximize ways each business can add value to our clients, while contributing to the organization and to each other.”
