Triad Securities Corp, a full service brokerage firm, announced today the appointment of three industry veterans to leadership roles on the firm’s expanding sales team. Brandi Gatlin has joined the firm as director of institutional sales and trading, Scott Daspin has joined as director of prime brokerage sales, and Kevin Heal joins as director of fixed income sales. With decades of experience in senior management positions, these new executives will help Triad respond to unprecedented demand for prime brokerage services.
