Kevin P. Barry has joined HilltopSecurities’ new office in Cleveland as managing director, institutional fixed income sales and trading.

The addition of Barry and the Cleveland location mark the most recent moves in the firm’s ongoing expansion in the Midwest. Since 2018, HilltopSecurities has opened six new offices and added investment bankers, underwriters, analysts, wealth management advisors, and sales and trading professionals in Ohio, Michigan, and Minnesota.

“As HilltopSecurities has continued to expand our presence throughout the Midwest, we are proud to welcome Kevin to our newest office in Cleveland,” said A.J. Maggio, HilltopSecurities managing director and co-head of fixed income capital markets. “With nearly 20 years of proven experience in institutional fixed income sales, Kevin brings the skills and product knowledge that will help us continue to grow in this important market.”

Barry joins HilltopSecurities from Huntington National Bank where he served as managing director, institutional sales and trading. Prior to his time at Huntington, he served as principal, institutional fixed income sales, at Piper Jaffray where he launched that firm’s Cleveland office. He has also held positions with Fifth Third Securities, McDonald Investments, and Morgan Stanley Dean Witter.
