NEW YORK – Guggenheim Partners, a global investment and advisory firm with more than $240 billion* in assets under management, announced today that it has named Gerald Donini and Mark Van Lith as Co-Chief Executive Officers of Guggenheim Securities, expanding the leadership in its investment banking and capital markets business.

“Guggenheim Securities has grown rapidly and, in a relatively short time, established itself as a trusted advisor to businesses worldwide,” said Alan Schwartz, Executive Chairman of Guggenheim Partners and Chairman of Securities. “Jerry’s and Mark’s shared client focus, their ability to collaborate productively, and their long track records of delivering results will allow us to build on the success of recent years and extend our growth for many more to come.”

Mark Walter, CEO of Guggenheim Partners, said, “Guggenheim Securities is fortunate to have two seasoned professionals in Jerry and Mark to lead this business. Alan and I look forward to seeing this business continue to grow under Jerry and Mark, and deliver exceptional service to our clients.”
