Hallacy will serve as program coordinator for The Bond Buyer's industry-leading events, responsible for setting agendas, acquiring speakers and convening panels. The Bond Buyer’s conferences, which include the annual National Municipal Bond Summit as well as the Texas and California Public Finance Conferences, serve as the leading meeting place for key decision makers in the municipal finance community. The Bond Buyer’s National Outlook Conference, the first SourceMedia event Hallacy will contribute to, takes place January 31, 2017, in New York City.
In addition to events and research, Hallacy's expertise will contribute regular market commentary to The Bond Buyer, the industry’s leading information resource.
Hallacy joins SourceMedia from Assured Guaranty, where he was a managing director. Prior to that, Hallacy spent 23 years heading Bank of America Merrill Lynch's municipal research group, providing commentary on municipal credit and strategy.
