Located in Atlanta’s Buckhead district, the new office is headed by Knight Securities vet Beatrix Kondor. Kondor has spent 20 years in institutional sales, having also worked at Merrill Lynch and Kidder Peabody.

BTIG already has nine domestic offices in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Greenwich, Red Bank and Orinda.
