Gladstone Securities LLC, an affiliated broker-dealer of The Gladstone Companies, has hired Sean Boyd as vice president, national accounts manager. In his new role, Boyd will be responsible for managing relationships and business development efforts with broker-dealers and registered investment advisors and will support the distribution efforts of the company’s affiliated funds’ current and future product offerings.
Gladstone Securities serves as the dealer manager for alternative investment offerings for certain affiliated Gladstone funds, including Gladstone Land Corporation (Nasdaq: LAND) and Gladstone Commercial Corporation (Nasdaq: GOOD).
Boyd is Gladstone Securities’ second hire for its new distribution team, following the addition of John Sabey, who joined the firm as national sales manager last month. The company previously engaged third-party vendors and their wholesaling and national accounts teams to distribute preferred stock offerings for Gladstone Land and Gladstone Commercial, both publicly traded real estate investment trusts.
Boyd has more than 20 years of financial services experience across various types of product offerings, and has relationships with broker-dealers, registered investment advisors and family offices throughout the United States, the company said.
Prior to joining Gladstone Securities, he served as vice president of national accounts for Megatel Capital Investment, the capital markets division of The Megatel Group. He previously held similar roles with Hartman Income REIT Management Inc. and Black Creek Group. While at Black Creek, where he spent nearly 15 years of his career, he was a member of the team that established and managed a selling group that raised approximately $9 billion for that firm, the company noted.
“Sean is an important addition to our distribution team. With the relationships he has developed throughout his career, he will be vital to developing our existing selling groups and expanding their size by adding more high-quality broker-dealers and RIAs,” said John Kent, head of capital markets at The Gladstone Companies. “We think his relationships are very complementary to those that we already have, and we think Sean will fit in well with the other teams within The Gladstone Companies.”
Boyd holds a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University.
Gladstone Securities specializes in fundraising and advisory services for affiliated funds of The Gladstone Companies. Gladstone Securities LLC is the investment banking affiliate of Gladstone Management Corporation, an investment adviser headquartered in the Washington, DC area, with offices in New York, Texas, Washington, Illinois and California.
