Prior to attending business school, he was a founding member of KBW’s insurance investment banking practice and worked in the financial services group of Alex, Brown & Sons where he covered insurance companies, depositories, and REITs.

Mr. Bair received a BA in Political Economy from Williams College and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

This meeting is open to all and registration is $95 per person for an excellent buffet lunch and the opportunity to hear from a leading investment banker specializing in our industry.
