Founded in 1937, the firm's capabilities span global investment management, capital markets, investment banking, and advisory services.
Mesirow Financial Holdings has appointed Natalie A Brown as president after its board of directors voted unanimously for her. She will work Richard S Price, Mesirow’s chairman and chief executive.
Brown joined Chicago-based Mesirow in 2018, most recently serving as the firm’s chief financial officer and chief administrative officer.
She is succeeding Dominick Mondi, who retired in February 2021 after 12 years of service in a series of executive roles. Jesse Keig, who has been with the firm since 2006, most recently as financial controller, is assuming the role of chief financial officer, with responsibilities spanning the firm’s accounting operations, business accounting, financial reporting, tax, and financial planning and analysis.
“Natalie is a natural leader with deep financial services experience, and an ability to navigate through complex challenges and opportunities successfully. Her core values align with the firm’s, which makes her an ideal choice for this role,” Price said.
Before joining Mesirow, Brown spent 18 years at Nuveen, where she served in senior accounting, finance, and investor relations roles. She spent the early part of her career in finance and accounting at Kraft Foods and KPMG. She has a bachelor of science in accounting from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and a master of business administration from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
