The President today announced his intent to appoint Thomas R. Reedy to serve as a Member of the Board of Trustees of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
Mr. Reedy, of Hinsdale, Illinois, is senior executive vice president and director of capital markets of EVEREN Securities, Inc., one of the nation's ten largest full-service securities brokerage firms. He oversees the firm's investment banking activities, including its equity, taxable, and municipal securities businesses. Mr. Reedy also serves on the board of directors and operating committee of EVEREN Securities.
In 1988, Mr. Reedy joined Blunt Ellis & Loewi, a predecessor of EVEREN Securities, as a senior vice president responsible for the investment banking and research areas of the firm's fixed-income department. He began his brokerage career in New York as a member of Paine Webber's public finance department. He later joined Drexel Burnham Lambert in New York as vice president of structured finance. In 1987, Mr. Reedy joined the Chicago office of E.F. Hutton & Company as a first vice president and regional manager of its midwest investment banking department.
Mr. Reedy serves on the board of directors for Working In The Schools (WITS), a Chicago-based not-for-profit organization that promotes the learning development of children in urban public elementary schools through volunteer tutoring and mentoring programs. EVEREN Securities became the founding corporate partner of WITS in 1994 and works with the organization to encourage corporate volunteerism. Today approximately 25 Chicago-area companies have joined WITS and allow their employees to serve as volunteer tutors during the business day. He is also a member of the University of Michigan Graduate School of Business Corporate Advisory Board. Mr. Reedy received a bachelor's degree from Illinois State University and an M.B.A. degree from the University of Michigan, and is a Certified Public Accountant.
