“Since joining ConvergEx in 2009, our organization has expanded and changed in tremendous ways.

Nelson, chief executive officer of ConvergEx Prime Services. “Our new name is a great expression of our company today.”

“This name change was a logical step in the evolution of this business and it is a reflection of our commitment to growing and developing it as an integral part of ConvergEx Group,” said Joseph M. Velli, chairman and chief executive officer of ConvergEx Group.

Mr. Nelson and Michael L. DeJarnette, president of ConvergEx Prime Services, will each continue in their respective roles. The business will continue to be based out of Atlanta, Georgia, and all of its clearing and custody arrangements, products, partnerships and projects will continue uninterrupted.
