MCI (Megatel Capital Investment), the capital markets division of the Megatel Group of companies, has hired Thomas Gentry to serve as regional vice president of the Central region.
Gentry brings nearly 20 years of securities experience to his new role and has raised more than $1 billion within the bank, wire-houses and independent broker-dealer channels, the company said.
He has marketed and distributed alternative investment products to both independent broker-dealers and registered investment advisory firms, and prior to joining the MCI team, he served as regional vice president at S2K Financial.
“It is great to have Tom as part of our MCI team”, said Zach Ipour, Co-Founder of MCI. “Tom’s experience is imperative to support our growth and expanding platform of alternative investment products”.
Gentry previously served as a regional director at GWG Holdings Inc. and regional vice president at Bluerock Capital Markets. He holds FINRA Series 6, 7, 63 and 66 licenses with Emerson Equity LLC.
In other news, The DI Wire reported last week that William Shea joined the firm as vice president of national accounts.
Megatel Capital Investment specializes in providing growth capital to Megatel Homes, one of the largest home-builders based in Dallas, Texas. MCI’s efforts are currently focused on communities in fast-growing population centers primarily located in Texas.
