Hurst has extensive experience in taxable and tax-exempt financing. He began his career in investment banking selling bonds at the age of 20 while attending college full-time on evenings and weekends. He moved into public finance early in his career.
“I found that I really enjoy working with people to help improve our communities, such as new hospitals, schools, affordable housing, economic development, and more. I’m thrilled to be building a team of like-minded professionals,” said Hurst.
Hurst will be based in the company’s new office in Little Rock. He is an honors graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
