Ziegler, a specialty investment bank and full-service brokerage firm, has hired seasoned public finance executive John A. Solarczyk as a Managing Director in its Newport Beach, California, office.

Mr. Solarczyk brings more than 20 years of banking experience to Ziegler, having previously served as a public finance banker and underwriter in California. John spent most of his career as a banker at De La Rosa & Co., having started with the company in 1993, and served as an underwriter for its very active trading desk from 2011-2014. After De La Rosa’s acquisition by Stifel in 2014, Mr. Solarczyk served as co-head of the organization’s Los Angeles-based Charter School Finance Group.

“I’m excited to join a firm with the 100-year history and well-earned reputation of Ziegler, especially as the public finance landscape is constantly growing more challenging, and Ziegler is well-positioned to help clients with both tax-exempt and taxable finance solutions,” said Mr. Solarczyk. “The firm’s substantial institutional trading presence and proprietary retail investor network create many opportunities for clients, particularly those with more challenging credit stories or situations.”

Mr. Solarczyk holds Series 7, 24, 53 and 63 licenses from FINRA. He graduated cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles with a bachelor’s degree in Business Economics.

“John is a highly experienced banker with deep relationships in California’s municipal finance community,” said Scott Rolfs, Managing Director and Head of Ziegler’s Religion & Education Finance Practice. “We are thrilled to have him join the Ziegler platform and provide great service for clients in California and across the Southwest.”
