Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 06, 2011
In January of this year, Summit Brokerage Services announced that, as part of the expansion of its marketing and recruiting efforts, it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which Don Shula, the winningest coach in the history of the National Football League, will serve as a corporate spokesperson for recruiting financial advisors.
Marshall Leeds, Summit’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are extremely pleased that Coach Shula, the only coach to lead a professional football team to an undefeated season, as well as a pro football Hall of Fame inductee, has agreed to support Summit in the growth of our firm. We strongly believe that financial advisors will respond well to Coach Shula’s reputation, both on and off the field, for winning, leadership, integrity and honor, which will help further cement the Firm’s reputation as a leading independent broker-dealer.”
Coach Shula expressed similar enthusiasm when he stated, “I see in the management and employees of Summit the same types of characteristics that I looked for when building championship teams. I look forward to my new role in working with Summit to recruit the industry’s best advisors.”
