The entire four-person Columbus public finance office of Cleveland-based McDonald Investments Inc. left the firm in the third week of March 2003, to join Robert W. Baird& Co. Their departure follows a trend over the past few years at the underwriter. The departure of the Columbus office staff followed a host of personnel losses within the past few years, including Richard Demko, who one source said, was asked to leave. While Robert W. Baird has 100 brokers in Ohio, the new office will have the only municipal finance bankers for that firm in the state, according to Timothy Long, a former employee at the public finance firm.
